Meet our Living Christmas Tree! Mike heard about this last year, and we have been deciding if we wanted to do it or not. We normally trade off each year, putting up a live Christmas tree for the years we are here for Christmas, and putting up the fake one for years we'll be in Illinois. This year is a "live" year, so we decided to try the living Christmas Tree. It's potted, so it never dies (unless I kill it), and they take it back to the nursery at the end of the season. We got ours through http://www.livingchristmas.com/ which only serves So. Cal but I have seen articles that there are over 30 places across the country that do it. So google it for your area and see if they have a similar program for you!
Anyway, I have a literal ton of pictures to upload from Thanksgiving. We had so much fun, hanging out with family and doing/seeing so much. I ran the turkey trot as planned, but twisted my ankle just after mile 2. But guess what, I still finished in 34:03! My best time yet! It would have been closer to 33 minutes had not been for that stupid stick in the middle of the road! Grrrrrr!
Hope everyone is having a great start to the Christmas season this year!!
