Day 12 of our Christmas Countdown:
My sister, Aiden, and I got to open a Christmas present from my dad last night. Aiden got a book and although he loves books, he wasn't very impressed. I really hope that's not how he is with all of his presents! But I was so excited when I opened mine! It was a little Chia Christmas tree! My dad wanted me to open it early so it would have time to grow before Christmas. I have always, ALWAYS wanted a Chia pet. From the first time I saw the little lamb growing its fur(?). I begged my mom for one every time I saw the commercial. I would even sing the annoying "Ch-Ch-Chia!" But I never got one... until now!!! LOL I'm such a dork! I can not wait until it starts to grow!
Submerge the base
Mix the seeds with water
Spread the seeds on the base
And watch it grow!
The directions say that it will grow quicker if you cover it with a plastic bag. So our Chia tree is now sitting on the counter under a Target bag. How pretty!
