My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
We got our real tree (White Pine) on Saturday. It was awesome!
I'm so happy for you! That's awesome.
oooh, I love white pine!! I'm from Michigan, where they are the state tree. My brother has a lot of them on his property in Michigan. He's had at least a few white pines for his Christmas trees and they are unbelievably beautiful. Sadly, they won't have them in places as Lowe's, etc.. here in FL and also I don't think the branches would be strong enough for some of my ornaments.
They are awesome. The needles aren't sharp at all and ours holds up through Christmas EVERY year.
I just put the ornaments inside the branches a little bit. The one we got this year was really tall and full as it could be. My husband had a great eye this time! I'll have to get a picture to show you.
Looking forward to Christmas a little early this year.

And I have just bought my very first ARTIFICIAL TREE !! I always have a real one but my living room is on the first floor and I have to carry it up a narrow stair case and it just makes such a mess. And then there is all the needles falling off and so I now decided to go for an artifical one. I chose a white one though. There wasn't a single green one that could match the real thing so I decided on white. It will make my ornaments look good ! I haven't put it up yet. Will do that on Saturday.
I will still get a real one for my window display downstairs so I will have both.
It is in giving that you receive the greatest gift !

I'm happy for you. When our children were small we had to get a real tree because our artificial tree had seen better days and we didn't want to spend the money for a new one.
My kids hated having the real tree (so did I). That was the last one and the only one in my married life of 39 yrs.
I must say having a real tree when I was growing up, made very interesting Christmases.
Tree wasn't put up untill Christmas Eve (back then fires were a big concern). Trunks usually did not work in the old tree stands, so it was a bucket of rocks to secure the tree. Also if need be string was tied to the tree at the top and then anchored to the wall by pounding a nail into the wall, I kid you not. Constantly watering the tree was a pain especially with my brother's Lionel train set up underneath.
Then the tree came down New Year's Day after only enjoying it for 7 days.
