Like most, my family was on the road this past Thanksgiving.
And also, like most, we always get our Christmas Tree right after Thanksgiving.
When we first moved almost 3 years ago, we couldn’t seem to find a Christmas Tree stand around our new house, which was completely crazy to me since there were probably Christmas Tree stands just about every 5 miles where we were from.
After the first year where I had to suck it up and go to Food Lion (which I will never do again)…….. (No OFFENSE Food Lion), and got a tree that DIED (I’m talking Brittle Dry Twigs People!) within the first week……
We decided that we would always get our tree while we were visiting home for Thanksgiving.
This year, I was VERY excited. This year would be the first year I wouldn’t have to measure anything. This is because our new house has 12 ft. ceilings. I know, I can hardly believe it myself.
I have NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER had a house with 12 ft. ceilings.
The kids on the other hand, just wanted to play hide and seek.
Aidan was really the first one. I lost him for a while, but thankfully he showed back up again before we were ready to leave. I know, great parenting.
Even Z was playing….. ok, not really.
Now was time to get down to business. Would it be that one?
Or that one? Or that one? Or that one?
And then, there I stood…. across the
room grass. I could have sworn I heard music playing, something like “Why do birds…… suddenly appear….. everytime! You are near!”
“Just like me, they long to be, CLOSE TO YOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUU!” She was PERRRRRRRRFECT! Yes, SHE!
BUT! Then!……… DUT DUT DUUUUUUUHHHHHH! Would it go through the terrifying tunnel of Net?
So we held our breath……
And with a HEAVE!!!
And a HOE!
She came through!
Yes, we drove 3 hours home with her in the back and Yes, we don’t mind if you call us the Griswold’s. We will own it and be proud to bare the name.
In closing, we came! ……. We saw!……
And WE CONQUERED!
Have a great weekend!
P.S. I’m working on A LOT of updates of the New House. Stay tuned to Blog Posts on it coming soon……… Like Monday!
