this is my first year ever having a real truly-live christmas tree, and, because of our big move, it will probably be the last. we took a family trip to a christmas tree lot to pick out the lucky winner yesterday. i found myself humming melodies from charlie brown christmas quite often. my heart went out to all the dinky charlie brown trees.
rachel didn't waste any time in letting us know that she wanted "the biggest christmas tree IN THE WHOOOOLE WORLD!"
and the winner is...
thanks to her short stature, she accepted that this tree was, indeed, the biggest. it was definitely the biggest that our non-vaulted living room basement ceiling could abide.
lucas was stoked.
a perfect fit!
daddy in action!
our bushy, heavenly-smelling tree with lights, before ornaments.
