I was so excited that this year we got to take Case to "help" us pick out our tree! We had a blast!!!
Waiting on the tractor to take us to the trees
I can remember a couple times that we went to pick out our tree and once we cut it down and got it home realized it was much smaller than it looked on the farm. Let's just say we didn't struggle with the same dilemma this year. I'm pretty sure this tree grew two feet on the car ride home.
"Mom of the Year" forgot to bring mittens for Case so he wore Daddy's gloves for a while
Upon returning home was scene straight out of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Wayne brought the tree in and it didn't fit in our living room. It was about a foot too tall so he had to take it back out and saw the end off. The good news is now we have greenery decorating everything from our fireplace mantle to our pots and pans wall rack. The bad news is that you have no idea how many needles fall off of a tree after it being dragged in and out of the house 4 times. I'm guessing from the looks of it, it was a little stressed out... as was I.
Once he got it to fit in our living room, and I use the term "fit" loosely, it looked beautiful! Case didn't show too much interest in it until Wayne put the lights on it. Clearly Daddy had put them on wrong because Case had to keep rearranging them!
Now we have a beautiful tree in our living room that has so far stayed in the vertical position for 3 days and counting. Maybe we'll get really brave and add ornaments in the next day or two.
