Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didn´t cut the trunk....the tree...
I love the day before Thanksgiving so much I give my entire staff the day off with pay so they can have a five day weekend. When I am hosting, I spend the day preparing 2/3 of the meal. However I stopped hosting a few years ago when we were building our new house and now with a new baby, I just can't seem to get back into it...yet. Maybe next year.
My wife still has to work that day in the morning so I will probably just hang out around the house in my PJs with my kids and read books.

My tradition for Thanksgiving Eve is to make my stuffing, try not to eat to much of it, cut up my vegetables and bake off pies. I Set up the main dining room and the buffet table. Then I make myself a cup of tea and look over my Thanksgiving Road Map one more time.

I love Thanksgiving Eve....b/c I'm off work!!! First thing I do is I cook a breakfast....Blueberry Cake with homemade icing.....umm...let the wife eat some and then I take it to the police station here in town....after that...I get all the extention cords run for the Christmas lights and turn it all on just so that whenever the wife gets home...she will see it...after that the fun starts....
I get into the house and turn on the tree and music and begin cooking! last year I made so much and I snacked so much I darn near made myself sick! I had to stop for a while and go sleep it off....I love it because of the anticipation of being with all the family and friends will usually stop by during the day and visit.....fun fun fun fun fun.....and I also like it because it's like the kickoff for everyone else to join us in the Christmas spirit!

I usually am exhausted from getting the meal put together and cleaning the house. I have to control myself if any of the wise guys I live with ask me, "what's for dinner?" It's every man for himself on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving! So, yeah, not much going on here except trying to keep my cool for the upcoming frenzy the next day!
