Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.
Because that's all you got, baby!
It's different. It's ours. We love it.
I asked Husband which tree cutting process had he enjoyed more. 1) Drive to Christmas tree farm in middle of nowhere. Tromp through woods to dither over which tree is most Christmassy. Cut it down. Plunk down $50 + bucks to man at Christmas tree farm. Lug it back to van. Adhere to van with much "discussion". Drive it home. Cut the stump and place in bucket of water. 24 hours later, wrestle into house. Affix in tree stand. Affix to walls with fishing line. Wrestle lights onto myriad branches.
Or option 2) Walk out into back yard. Cut down hardwood. Walk back to house. Place tree in tree stand. Watch wife wrestle lights onto few but substantial branches.
His answer, "Well, I am not sure how to comment. But I will tell you that I all ready have next year's tree picked out."
Woo hoo! Mr. Grinch and Mrs. Claus have rediscovered the Christmas spirit!
