Oh, I do love going to get a real Christmas tree however this year's trip was a little more than I bargained for. Hubby couldn't go so the boys and I set off to get one. I voted for a tall slender Frasier Fir but they liked a shorter well shaped Noble Fir. They know Mom always gets the final say on such things but I let the Noble win out. So the men at the lot drilled it and
tied put it on top of the Tahoe. Halfway home the thing starts to shift. I was watching it through the sunroof as I gingerly drove down the road. Then the boys discovered the limb that one side was tied down with was breaking. *note to self - always take extra rope* So Jonah riding "shotgun" opened the sunroof and held on with both hands, in a freezing drizzle, as we drove 4 more miles to home. Finally made it! Set it in the stand, and it was so crooked! I mean like 35 degrees crooked! I thought I was going to cry. Then Wayne came home for lunch and saved the day by redrilling the tree & getting it to stand up straight. Thanks, Honey.
Now for the fun part - decorating.
Let's take a closer look at some of my favorites...
