Sam and I have come to love our Charlie Brown trees. They may not be the most perfect, but they have character and hold memories of hunting them down. If you've seen Christmas Vacation you know how the tree always looks smaller in the forest. This always happens to us every year. I like it when they're too big because then we can make a wreath out of the extra trimmings. The other nice thing about trees that aren't so full is that you can load them with ornaments. You can tuck them deep in the tree and outside. A downside is that they usually require many strands of lights to get them glowing good! I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane!
