I've been looking forward to this day ever since we did it last year. It now has a fancy new name and may even end up with t-shits some day. We went after church and before lunch on Sunday. It wasn't too cold, but was pretty windy. The kids covered their faces with the blanket on the way there, but it was to our backs headed home.
We picked out a beautiful balsam and tied it to the cart.
It took a couple more days, but it's got lights and ornaments now. Both kids are pretty obsessed with it. It also seems dryer than our tree last year and is loosing a lot of needles.
The mantle is looking pretty good this year as well. I am almost fully caught up on my patches as well. Parker's was very behind and I just need to add one to mine and Esme's.
So excited for the holidays!
