Well, our tree it now up! We went to get one Thursday at Home Depot. We seem to hop back and forth between a real tree/fake tree Christmas each year. But Home Depot had the best deals it seemed. We bought a $32 real tree only to find out they charged us $41. So The Wife decides it’s enough to have to load the tree back up and go get that $9 back. Turns out they had a $41 tree mixed in w/ the $32 ones. But we got that refund either way.
But after setting it up Thursday and lighting half of it, we finished the lights and put on the ornaments last night. The girls were really excited about it all. Addison because she’s done all this before already. And Ella because she liked hanging ornaments on the tree. But her hanging consisted of poking the ornament on the limb and hoping it stuck.
We’ve been listening to a lot of “The Carpenter’s Christmas” and Harry Conick Jr’s Christmas cd. Not stuff I’d listen to just any ole day, but seems to fit the mood right now. And Thursday it went from about 70 degrees to 35 degrees in a matter of hours. So the cold is here. But it probably won’t last all the way til Christmas.
