Our Tree







Last night we finally made it to get our tree.

Michael's late nights and overnights,
plus my reluctance to leave the couch,
made us super late this year.

I guess that mean it stays up longer... right?
That is what I thought too.

Our normal go-to place only had 3 trees left...
and they were giant 9 foot tall bush-like trees.
That is how we ended up with a shrub-like tree last year. 
Wanna see...here you go.

So we headed to the giant blow-up Santa.
Eva had clapped when we drove by the other day and sang Ho Ho Ho.
That is all it takes to real us in folks... make our monster clap.

Thank you lady for taking our photo.
It was so sweet of you to offer.
Even while Eva was screaming and my camera was strange... you kept your cool.

Right after this, I headed to the car while Michael handled the purchase.
Eva and I talked about the giant Santa and sang Christmas songs...
with the heat on full blast.

We managed to get the lights on before bed time.
This morning, Tree tree tree! and a clapping monster.
This tree might not ever come down.

One year I didn't get our tree up until Dec. 14th so I felt fully justified in leaving it up until February....yeah. That happened hahaha
