Valentine Tree

imageBecause the Christmas season was so short this year we decided to make our tree into a Valentine tree. When I was a kid my mom did this with our Christmas tree and I loved it! Once married I tried this with our live Christmas tree and was in for quite a surprise! I was sitting on the floor one night working on a craft project when I noticed there was a LOT of dirt under the tree! Only… wasn’t DIRT! was millions of teeny tiny BUGS!

Unbeknownst to us there was evidently a nest of bug eggs that had hatched. This probably happened because we had the tree in the warm indoors so long. It was SO disgusting getting that tree out of the house. The whole way out the door bugs were dropping EVERYwhere! Needless to say we no longer buy live trees because of that incident! :)
