After TEN years, I don’t have much more to say about tree hauling by bike. Other than TEN YEARS! Wow, we really are old. The 13-year-old hauled the tree home, then immediately set off on his bike for an afternoon D&D session at his friend’s house. Teens are busy! I will say that my family has labeled me the Scrooge because I’m sorta down on Christmas and all of the commercialism. That tree we hauled home yesterday was eighty bucks! Bah Humbug.
Thanks to Tim for keeping the Christmas spirit alive in our house! His Christmas-loving mom would be proud. Merry Christmas!
Once again, I’m recycling our tree-hauling photo retrospective from years past. Last year our daughter claimed that, “our family is weird” and “this was her last year”. And yesterday she said, “Now that we’ve done ten, I’m done.” So this really could be our last Christmas tree post, EVER. We’ll see.
Year One: 2007, look how little!
Year Two: 2008, a dusting of snow
Year Three: 2009, the year we froze
Year Four: 2010, the year it rained a lot
Year Five: 2011, kids on their own bikes!
Year Six: 2012, looking so grown up!
Year Seven: 2013, Kids hauling trees. (She’s almost as tall as me)
Year Eight: 2014, whoa these kids are tall, but still shorter than me.
2015: Year Nine. We’re almost all the same height (except for Tim)
2016: Year Ten. I have places to be. Can we go yet?
Happy Holidays, everyone. Looking forward to checking out your tree-hauling adventures.
