When Barbie Marries Charlie Brown


They are going to have a tree just like mine! Having really gotten behind the eight ball on holiday decorating, Shana thought we should go for something fun, and suggested we get a "Charlie Brown tree" instead of trying to get a big tree up and decorated only to take it down in a few days. . She'd been in and out of Michael's about 47 times in the last week and had noticed this sweet little pink tinsel tree with pink lights in the window. I'd been lobbying for a 60's style aluminum, but this one is even better. When Shana suggested that what we really needed was the pink tree I jumped right on it. I went for full Barbie with white pearl balls and silver & "crystal" bead garlands. It's the most fun tree I have ever had. In fact, it's the most excited I've been about a Christmas tree in years and years. We've always gone for the traditional green tree, in various incarnations, from fake to real and from huge to tiny. Even though Shana and I between us have a great selection of ornaments we've collected over the years, in recent years setting up the tree has seemed like drudgery. Taking it down has been exponentially worse. This one is all fun and no work.
