Doing The Right Thing

So I'm sure I've mentioned that we bought a LIVE tree for Christmas this year. The idea being that we would enjoy it, and then re-home it after the holidays. I guess it's worth mentioning that this tree is supposed to grow to 70 feet, so it's not like I can just plant it in the corner of the yard.

Well, the re-homing process has turned out to be quite difficult. I called the Denver tree planting group - they won't take it because it isn't one of the trees they are allowed to plant.

So I called the Denver Botanical Gardens. I have not heard back from them.

So then I did some research. Turns out the Mayor of Denver is looking to plant 1 million trees by 2009. Jackpot, right? Wrong. I haven't heard back from the Mayor's people about my offer to donate a tree to his cause. Hubs thinks they're busy out planting trees and haven't received my voice mail yet. Yah, whatever!

So I'm going to try the Denver Botanical Gardens again - and then the Mayor's office (again!) and if they don't call me back, I might try putting it on eBay.

Thing is, I've gotten a little attached to my tree, and I want Pinola to go to a good home.

Grow, Girl. Grow.

Thought it was worth mentioning that Chase is now wearing size 7.5 - 8 shoes. She is now moving into 3T clothes, many of her 2T clothes are too small. I have no idea how big her head is (she won't sit still long enough for me to measure it). Size 5 diapers (27lbs plus) don't seem big enough. Oh, and she's 21.5 months old.
