The Tree

Every year since we had our kids we have gone and cut our own tree. Unfortunately this year it wasn't meant to be. We just didn't have time to get out there and do it. So we went to a tree farm and got a pre-cut instead. Why do I tell you that little story? Because I know the fam is wondering why there are no pictures of the cutting
So we start this little story in the middle.
With the tree.
I know. It's a little funny looking, isn't it. All the other trees were snickering when we picking this one. They were poking each other in the ribs and pointing. It was a little embarrassing.
Any way we came home and decorated. The kids really needed a nap yesterday. So Jason and I made merry while they slept away the afternoon.
Then we had the big reveal. Anna especially loved it.

She pointed and looked at each ornament very carefully.

Mark was far more interested in the candy cane given to him at the farm. So he didn't get in on a lot of the first pictures. Don't worry, I will take plenty more. My camera is never far away.
Tux gets a mention today though. Every morning during Christmas I get to wake up to the sound of a cat getting sick. He loves needles but they don't agree with him. Stupid cat.
He may get to spend Christmas in the basement. (I know you wanted to hear about that.)

I remember standing my kids in front of the tree and making a big deal about turning on the lights. I'd "oooooo and ah" and they'd look at me like I was nuts!

I'm impressed your daughter doesn't knock the thing down. I had to gate ours off ... or else it would be in the horizontal instead of vertical position!

It is beautiful! At least you still have a really tree too. We had to sell out when we moved into a condo a couple years ago and get a fake one :( Needless to say we never went back, and my house has never smelled the same.
