This was my only attempt at a Christmas photo. They weren't exactly cooperating. Note: The leg sticking up in the air. This was the *best* photo. Oh well. I'll try again on Christmas Eve and Christmas.
I've been telling Matt we were going to get a small tree. Just a little $20 tree. Nothing big. Our living room is quite small, and the only place to put it is between the TV and the basement door, so small is necessary. Small. Well, don't you like our small tree? I like my friend's husband response on this one, "What's important is that it cost like a small one :) How can he blame you for getting the most for his buck!? :)" I like that! Perfect! I'll go with that explanation!
Truth be told, this tree was 50% off. And since the girls and I were freezing by the moment out in the cold, we "settled" on this tree. Oceana had a little handout about how to care for a tree in her hand. It had one of those "tree perfection" trees on it and she was convinced she had to find that tree. After about 10 minutes she was happy to pick the $20 one with a few funny imperfection. We just wanted to get inside to pay for our tree!
I was optimistic thinking that a small tree would fit into the trunk of our little Jetta. Notsomuch. Matt had to run to his Dad's work to borrow the SUV so we could actually get it home. (Thus why Oceana and I picked the tree, Matt was driving across town to get a tree-mover).
Hope you're all ready for Christmas! I am not. I have a *ton* of stuff to sew, and a lot more to clean. *Eesh*.
