Hey that's a good one! Glad I wasn't the one that bought you the dream catcher..LOL. I don't know how you can stand to have your tree up so long. I put mine up sometime the first week of December (or whenever we get our butts out to chop one down) and then I take it down Dec 27th.

Hope you are feeling better soon! I've been so crazy busy with the school and the Knight family fundraiser which is why you haven't heard from me lately.
