We have. We must always have a crooked Christmas tree-it's tradition, lol. Our first Christmas living together was in 1999 and we got our tree from Walmart. It was crooked. No matter how we adjusted the stand, it was still crooked. Dh was really upset. He kept going outside and cutting more of the trunk off to try to even it out, lol. Finally, I just threw my arms around his neck and told him that I loved our little crooked tree and that from then on, I ALWAYS wanted our tree to be crooked. He laughed at me and hugged me and so now we always get a crooked tree. I've actually sent him outside to cut more off of the trunk to make it more crooked, lol. It's our goofy lil tradition that we started.
Our only tradition is that we buy an ornament each year ... usually disney ... for us, for Ben, and for each of the dogs. We want to someday have a huge tree that's decorated with memories of the past rather than store-bought cookie-cutter-looking ornaments.
DH and I love wrapping our DD's gifts at the very last minute. The night that we get it all done, we mix up some "special" eggnog and sit on our living room floor watching Christmas movies wrapping Raven's gifts. This year we'll have twice as much to wrap, so we may start a few days earlier. Who am I kidding?! No we won't!
