Because I could!

summer playground
When Sandy blew through, it knocked down a major tree in front of my MILs.  DH paced it out to be 39 feet.  In a God-Hand moment, it missed her roof, garage, porch and powerlines.  That's right folks: it settled gracefully to the ground and didnt hurt anything --- well other than itself.

When we cleaned it up for her, we cut off the top 6 feet for someone to use as a Christmas tree.  But nobody wanted it.

So I decided to prank my sister.  (How often do you get to pull off a GOOD prank?)  DH screwed some boards on the bottom and I invested $10s in timer and some lights.

When she came home, she didnt know if it was her house.  Seriously, wouldnt you be surprised if a tree suddenly sprouted on your lawn?  Turns out she loved it and may never put a tree *inside* her house again.

Brings a whole new meaning to "Put the Christmas tree by the windows where the neighbors can see it."
