What do a tree and a trukey have in common.....

If you live in Charlestown they both come frozen....

We got our tree yesterday from the Boys and Girls Club of Charlestown and it is a tree I'll always remember. We got home and cut the twine and unlike most tress not one branch moved. It had ice on it but we didn't realize it was frozen solid all the way through. We had to bring it inside to thaw out. I had three beach size towels around it and they're all soaked! I put warm water in the tree stand to help speed up the thawing and our tree stand was steaming, it was cold! Then we sprayed warm water on it and finally that was helping it "lay down". We got our tree at 2pm and finally at 9pm we started to decorate it. There was something not right about going to bed and not having it decorated, but I had to pull off the final ice chunks before I'd put lights on it. Of course Music Guy reminded me the same lights go outside and we'd be fine. Dauh Kimba!

It was a very good weekend fast but good! We had J & G over and we went out to dinner. Saturday we tried not to freeze while running around. Sunday we had MG's dad over along with J & G for our 1st Annual Tree Trimming Party (we decided that after the fact). Next year we'll get a head of the game and thaw our tree out before the guest arrive!

I'm out of the office the next two days for work. Just think when I get back to the office it'll be Thursday!!! Though i'll still be working and have my blackberry it'll be a nice change!

Ha! That must have been what was wrong with the trees at home depot. I ended up getting a settled tree, I was too excited to decorate to waite!

A frozen tree?! That sounds like something you would never see where I live!

thanks for the comment on my blog!

I can't believe your tree was frozen. Makes a great holiday memory though!

Too funny! But I have to admit, I've love a frozen tree right now. We're experiencing a drought in northern CA and are having these weird tropical temperatures. Makes it hard to get into the spirit! You, on the other hand, might actually have a white Christmas.
