So, the trip to the tree farm went without a hitch. The job of getting the tree into the house and standing was another story entirely. I have clipped as much of the boring stuff out as I could. I will say this. After three attempts, the tree is beautiful. And, Rob was his usual goofy self, which kept the stress level to a minimum. Enjoy!
Since our entire morning was taken up just trying to get the tree to stand up, we had to wait to decorate it. We wanted to make sure the kids would be in a good mood and we had plenty of time to let them put their stamp on it. Boy did they!
I am happy to say, it was everything I hoped it would be. They did great. The light in their eyes was magical. There is something special about watching a child experience and see something so big and amazing they can't comprehend it all. They brought out the true meaning of Christmas. Jesus Birthday!
