Oh Christmas Shrub! Oh Christmas Shrub!

This year we decided to think outside the box and scavenge a rogue Juniper Shrub from the yard as our Christmas tree. Now, you might be wondering what the thought process was behind this strange behavior. Well, quite simply we were being cheap and lazy. After all, who likes to fork over $75.oo for a "u-cut your own tree .

As it turns out we were pleasantly surprised, she decorated up rather nicely. It appears that "cheap and lazy" paid off for us this time around. Must be the season .

Now, the words are - "Oh, Christmas Shrub, Oh Christmas Shrub..."

"I never thought it was such a bad
little tree. It's not bad at all, really.
Maybe it just needs a little love."
(Linus, "A Charlie Brown Christmas")

And you've given this tree some love and it looks just beautiful!!

Our Happy Happenings
