We traipsed about for a little while so Matt could decide on the perfect tree, but it wasn't too long before he settled on THE ONE. Matt and I re-enacted the 'that wouldn't fit in out yard' scene from Christmas Vacation. I played the part of Russ, my tree-lovin' husband was, of course, Clark.
Jack really wanted to man the saw, so once the tree was down Matt helped him 'cut' through the last bit of bark. I honestly don't think there was anything to cut but he was very proud of himself anyway.
We trudged back through the field, rode the wagon back, and strapped that bad boy onto our car to take it home to decorate. We did have to stop once so that we could re-adjust the tree. I had looked out of my side mirror to see it perched sideways on the roof of the car...not a good thing!
Jack rearranges the bottom level of ornaments daily, focusing mainly on my husbands Star Wars character ornaments. Oh yes, you read that correctly. STAR WARS ORNAMENTS. Needless to say, we do not have a showcase style tree, but gosh darnit, I love the thing!
Do you have your Christmas tree up yet?
