Our Christmas houseplant

Al Gore would be proud. In this season of consumption, we elected to not "consume" a Christmas tree this year. Instead, we dropped $10 at Lowe's and took home our Tannenbaum, tucked on the floor of the front seat in between Tricia's feet.

This little plant isn't a bush--it's a Norfolk pine tree. If we keep watering it throughout the year, we can use it again for years to come.

The only downside is that we discovered most of our ornaments, and all of our strings of lights, are a bit heavy for the tree's branches. So you'll notice a few ornaments ornamentally leaning next to the pot, and Trish placed the tree under our spotlight to add some special lighting to the scene.
