I'm driving my 12 year old nuts!!

Emma can't quite understand why I continue to decorate my Christmas tree and it's nearly August. So far this year it's been a Chinese New Year Tree, an Easter Tree, a Paris-themed birthday Tree, 4th of July Tree and now my sunflower/summer tree.

As her mom, I am taking great pleasure in driving her nuts.


I realize it's nearly August but I keep finding new things (thanks Michael's...I love your 40% weekly coupons) to put on my tree!! I was serious when I said we didn't have room for it since we completed the downstairs renovation and eliminated our storage. Just wait until Halloween. This tree is going to be filled!!!

Too funny! I like to drive my older kids a little nuts. It's such great payback. haha I like your tree--I think it's fun! :) And since you live near the North Woods, it's just FINE to have that tree up all year.

That is soooo funny! I love your tree and I can't wait to see it when Halloween rolls around.

Speaking of Halloween, what do you think about this costume:

You better believe I am already shopping for a costume!

I love it! My grandma has a small tree that she keeps up year round and changes the decorations. I am sure the Halloween tree will be awesome.

Love the new decorations!
I have a collection of small birdhouses that are on my tree right now. Always fun to find new things for the tree in between holidays.

So cute! You are funny! Maybe if I start now, my tree will look halfway decent by Christmas!

Hope you have a great weekend!

I think I'm going to have to consider doing the same. I always hate putting up the last tree. We have a small one in the dining room that I hang onto...as it is covered in snow men....then I can make it CNY...and I'm going to ponder that for next year. Hehehhe

How about a 'back to school tree' filled with school supplies.
