Poll Explanation

The kids have been giving me a real hard time because I am not putting up our normal big artificial Christmas tree this year. It is so much trouble to take it out of storage, “fluff” it and decorate it. I am so busy this year with the building of the new house, keeping our current house spotless with it being on the market and Christmas on top of all the normal demands I keep as a wife, mother and Sunday school teacher. I am posting two pictures of what we are using as our Christmas tree this year…it is made out of grapevine & I think it is a very cute tree! The kids just keep belly aching saying, “I can’t believe that you are not going to put up our Christmas tree!”

Am I being a bad mom?

I mean I love traditions and know how important they are to kids. I know the little things are the big things. But in this instance…it is NOT a little thing or task to get that tree out and decorate it. I am just asking for this one year that we use the one we have. A sweet new friend gave it to me and I really do like it. We will have many other Christmas’ to use our “normal,” big Christmas tree.

Let me know your opinion by voting on my poll. Thanks!

Merry Christmas,
