Every year, chris' company helps a church get ready for their big Christmas tree sale fundraiser. And every year, Chris' business partner gets a free tree as a thank you. This year, Chris playfully asked where *his* tree was.
Friday afternoon, chris calls me up and says, "one of the guys from work is bringing us a tree. you need to look at it & tell him if you like it." --like i would say no to a free tree! So the guy rings the doorbell, & i answer the door to see a 10foot tall tree!!!
usually we get a skinny home depot $20 ft tall tree & stick it in the corner of the dining room. This one is worth $150!!! And there's no way it would fit in our dining room. so we had to get rid of one of the chairs in our living room & put it there --good thing we have vaulted ceilings! :)
So Chris set up the tree on Sat. evening, & we spend sunday evening keeping with our decorating tradition: i serve eggnog & hot apple cider & we invite a friend to come join us in the festivities. Then I get mad at Chris for not helping while the rest of us decorate the tree. This year, Evelyn added a nice little twist by throwing up three times. I just have to say that my absolute least favorite thing about motherhood is throw up.
