Hooray! We finally got our Christmas tree. I had my doubts for this year. I don’t think we’ve ever waited this long to get a tree. This is our second year with a real tree (going on 3 if you count the tree branch).
This year we are in a smaller place. I was hoping to get a tree that was on the smaller side but what we ended up with was on the larger side. When we arrived at the nursery there were about five trees left. My husband did a quick scan of the perimeter and decided on a somewhat large tree. I would have passed and gone elsewhere but my husband didn’t want to make another stop. I mentioned that the tree was kind of big, but he was ready to check out.
Getting it in the condo was the biggest challenge (there were lots of pine needles shed, and we have a new dent in the wall). Once everything was done captain obvious made a key observation – “that is a big tree.” We just looked at each other and laughed.
