Where did you spend your money?

We tried to not spend money this year! We tried to save save save! I think the question we should pose next year is, what did you save up for? Or, what did you give up to save money on?
So we did spend some money in the end. We bought this crazy tall maple tree, an autumn blaze maple. The tree-nursery guys put the rootball in the car and then suspended the tree in the air, dangling from the trunk of it. It was a long 4 mile drive home. When we got it home, we dug and dug in a heavy rain shower to get it in the ground. It's currently firmly planted with snow clinging to its thin red branches. It's about 16 feet tall and hasn't shifted or bent in this crazy wintry weather. We love you AUTUMN BLAZE!
