So it was maybe the 18th or so and my mom and I were talking about our laziness because we didn't have a tree up yet. We came to the conclusion that it wouldn't be a huge deal if we just didn't put one up at all.
Then I was surfing around Craftster and saw LittleGirl's post on her invisible tree. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=399491.0
I thought it was a fabulous idea and knew that when I moved out this would be my "tree" because it would be too weird for my parents although I proposed the idea to them anyway. Like I thought, they didn't seem to excited about the idea.
Then a few days ago I was out with a friend and when I came home my parents had crafted an un-tree Christmas tree for me!
They made it out of a tomato cage, lights, and garland.
