Compared to trees that I saw when I was in the UK, our tree is pretty lame. Yes, itâ€™s not a real one, because real pine trees in NZ look like… sticks with random branches. Our little tiny fake one looks better than any pine tree Iâ€™ve ever seen. We donâ€™t have Fir trees, or whatever you foreigners use I donâ€™t like the way my floor gets covered in pine needles too, and needlessly cutting down some innocent baby tree just to have it die in my yard, then having to pay $30 to dump it at the rubbish tip. It doesnâ€™t seem the logical or sustainable thing to do. But I hope one day I can have a really bushy real tree that looks awesome, they need to genetically modify them so they make good Christmas trees. I saw a cool fake black one o_O
Anyway, take a look at our fake tree. The photo doesnâ€™t really do it justice. Iâ€™m going to film it at night with the pretty lights flashing and going all colours. I also took the photo before I found a box with tinsel in it So it is a bit bare. Weâ€™ve had this tree for about… 10 years o_O So itâ€™s kind of old and worn out. But itâ€™s a good tree, it fits nicely on the table in the corner and we only have a few decorations, all the ones we made as kids are all thrown out long ago. Plus, our cat likes to pull it over so it pays not to have a big tree. Charlotte already nearly pulled the tree over twice. Gotta keep an eye on these kids o_O
Charlotte made her first decoration at this Christmas party she went to, itâ€™s a toilet roll converted into a Santa. Heâ€™s sitting up there next to the Angel. Santa is all coloured in with colourful felt pens (which might I add do NOT wash out of her best t-shirt very well). He has a hat with cotton wool on it. Heâ€™s very cool looking. Sheâ€™s not completely sure who Father Christmas/Santa is. I tried to explain it, but all she does is point at say â€œteeâ€ which is tree in her language.
Our tree looks very nice in person. :p Iâ€™m pleased with it. I decorated it ALL on my own. I even themed it so itâ€™s only gold and red. One day Iâ€™m going to have a massive tree, and Iâ€™ll decorate it only in silver and bloo. Until then, Iâ€™m very happy with this one. Iâ€™ll post a video of it tonight.
And it already has about 6 presents under it oooooâ€¦..
P.S. stop laughing at my tree, or Santa wonâ€™t come to your house!
