Christmas tree!!

I know it’s still November, but I kind of give myself permission to start decorating for Christmas once Thanksgiving is over.

SO! I bought a Christmas tree today. Matt’s in class all afternoon, but he is a self-proclaimed humbug and didn’t want to help with any of the setup or anything. We’re having a Christmas party and he’s insisting on building a Festivus pole. (Which is fine with me of course.)

So I went to Lowe’s and found a big Douglas Fir and bought it and everything all by myself (still kind of a big deal). The quiet, nice older man who trimmed it and wrapped it for me helped me get it in my little Kia trunk. I took a picture for effect. It’s a small car.

Ha!  Getting it out was the hard part, as you can probably imagine.  But I did get it in and set up, and it looks great!

The Charlie Brown tree that we used last year is in the dining room.  🙂

  1. Dad suggested I go buy our tree myself, and I told him there was (almost) no way I could do that. I am too short and not strong enough to get trees out and look at them, then pick the perfect one and take it to the car to strap onto the top. Yea for YOU! You did it yourself. (You ARE taller and stronger than I.)

    We lit the Yule Log yesterday, by the way. Ha haa haa!!! It’s so silly-looking.


  2. I imagine that being tall does help when you’re moving Christmas trees. 🙂 I didn’t feel like looking through all of them to pick out a perfectly-shaped tree, so I just got one that looked fine and made sure the most even-looking side was facing out.
