O Christmas Tree (by Julie)

    Hey, Julie here! I am so excited about Christmas. I think that it is such a great holiday. To me, it never really feels like Christmas until we put up our tree. So, I'm going to tell you the story behind our tree. Normally, we put up an artificial tree, but this year we decided to change it up and get a real, live tree! We sent Samantha and Nicki to buy a tree. While they were gone, the rest of us went into the attic to get our Christmas ornaments and decorations. Everyone carried a box or two downstairs. We found that some boxes had gathered quite a bit of dust. The worst part was when a cockroach crawled out of a box! Eww! We all screamed and jumped on the couch or on a chair whlile Jessica bravely squished the roach with her shoe. What seemed like a simple task had turned into quite the adventure! Around noon, Samantha and Nicki had returned. "We found the perfect tree!" Samantha boasted. We eargerly waited to see the tree. "Ta da!" Nicki and Samantha said as they presented the tree to us. However, we were not as thrilled with the tree as they were. "What is this? Out of all thee trees in the lot, this is the one you buy?!" Felicity screeched. The tree was really small and had almost no branches. Let's face it, it was pathetic. "But it is soooo cute!" said Samantha. I have to admit is was pretty cute. So, we decided to give the little tree a chance. We tried decorating it but it barely could hold the weight of one ormanent! We all sighed as we unpacked the artificial tree. Even though it isn't real, our tree still looks beautiful. Besides, we had lots of fun decorating it. So now  two very different trees brighten our home with Christmas spirit!
