After driving around for about an hour we finally found a spot where I knew I would pick my tree. But before I go into details, let's back up a bit. I was feeling kind of "scroogy" this year and didn't really want a tree. MMR and I will be heading back Boise for Christmas and we will be leaving right after finals next week. Every year we put one up, it falls down, we stand it back up, it falls back down. Don't get me wrong I still absolutely love Christmas and the rest of the house was lighted up before we got the tree. MMR talked me into going and told me exactly what I knew would happen. It would be 12/17 and I would be unhappy because I didn't get to stare at a Christmas tree.
Back to the present, I wanted a smaller tree. I have terrible depth perception and last year way misjudged the tree we picked. It was huge, MMR was sawing branches off for a whole hour when we got home. I wish my house was actually big enough to hold what looks like a humungo tree, but there were 4 trees clustered here to choose from.
Aw so perfect!
I only have a couple things to put up around the house, and our decorating will be complete for the season! Here's what we got so far:
And I will leave you with this. When we go Christmas Tree Hunting, no saws or axes are required, think RedNeck.
