We got our Christmas tree!! YEAH!!
The evening started at a small tree lot near our home...we wanted to go to a private lot to get a more "chop it down yourself" feel. The trees were beautiful...and $80!! So, next stop, Home Depot. Not exactly the same feel, but a fantastic tree for $40! MUCH BETTER! Then came the funny part.
Here we are with our 7 foot tree and Seth pulls up in our Corolla!! HAHAHA. The man was a good sport and told us about a guy who got a 9 foot tree and pulled up in a COBALT!! So, it could have been worse. Then, he starts tying the tree to the car. About half way through, Seth and I realize that we can't open doors. We comment to the guy, who says, "Well, get in the car now then"! So, we climb through the car put the kids in their seat THROUGH THE WINDOW and wait for him to finish up. Then, we are on our way home!
And you can't end the night without jumping through your window to get out!! Or at least that's what Seth said!!
Then, came a wonderful night of dressing the tree. It was a blast...with a few broken ornaments(thank you Keaton) and some reminiscing of past Christmases! It's amazing what has happened over the last 4 1/2 years! Our family has grown and we have been so blessed!! Here are some pictures of the finished product!
