For the first time in 10 years i have decided to get a real tree this year w00t.. Only problem is i've only had a real tree ONE TIME and well like i said it was 10 years ago. I want to get one NOW but terence wants to wait and I HATE waiting *cries*. He just doesn't understand my love for xmas. I usually have the tree up the day after halloween and my house is still empty and xmas is a month away and this SUCKS!.

Keeping it watered is the big thing. We don't use a tree stand because they make watering difficult and messy. We use a bucket and put a tree skirt around it, and try to keep it at least half full of water. I suggest staying away from spruce trees, they start to smell like cat pee. But as long as you keep it watered it should be fine.

We usually put ours up the week before xmas and take it down the last week in Jan.

New Contest For Aspiring Tween Fashion Designers
If anyone has kids who are interested in breaking into the fashion industry, there’s a new online contest. You can find it at The Fashion Fantasy Game (http://www.fashionfantasygame.com/). It’s called the Jordin Sparks Jingle Dress Contest.

This contest was designed specifically for the Christmas season. Players can design their own virtual clothes in the game and engage in some friendly competition with other players. It's much better than having your kid go to the mall and waste your money on real clothes that will be out of style by next year.

Oh, and don't forget -- The Fashion Fantasy Game isn't just a game. It's also an open forum for discussion. If you have anything to say about Governor Blagojevich, feel free to say it while chatting, or just email it to User Feedback. I'm sure his name is easier to write than to say!
