    We are on our way back from our favorite local farmer's U-cut lot and the 4 year old asks what happens to the tree after Christmas. Wife says it goes in the stove. 9 year old chips in "When is the only time Daddy pays for firewood?" ...pause/puzzlement..."Christmas time".

    We taught our kids just a little different. We always put our tree out after Christmas for use of the little critters. A little snow on the tree and it makes a great shelter for rabbits and such.

    Kids can be funny! You have a future woodburner on your hands there!
    2 years ago we had a "Fresh Air" boy from NYC...on way to pick up pizza(could not understand why it was not being delivered!) and he commented on all the trees here. I said that's because we are "in the country"....he wanted to know what country we were in now!!??

    We also just let the local critters make a home with our leftover tree.

    My wife likes the big full trees, as wide as they are tall. It isn't too bad going in the door but makes a real mess if you try and push it back out.

    Good laborer too. She probably stacked 2 or 3 cord this fall. The little one is just the opposite, wants to be a princess when she grows up.

    I didn't know where she was going with it, it is one of life's finer pleasures to watch them grow.

    It was a nice 15 year old blue spruce. Probably not many btus in the 2 rounds I got out of it, but they burned well. The rest is out providing wildlife habitat. Can you believe that people actually use plastic trees?

    I can believe it. We travel most Christmases and can't take care of a real tree. I have probably a whole cord worth of fake Christmas Trees in my house (wife is a Christmas decorating nut).
