seriously?!?!? you have got.to.be.kidding.me. ANNOYING! we think a rat decided he wanted to celebrate christmas in the storage shed. so after we took it all apart and drug it back into the garage, my rock star hubby VOLUNTEERED (no i did not even ask him) to run to home depot at 9 pm to get a new one.
i made him promise to get a pretty one. yes, i am a little snotty about my christmas trees. we used to ALWAYS get a real one growing up. then my parents decided to abandon that tradition (yes i appreciate fake trees, but i could not get over abandoning the tradition of going and picking out the tree each year)...and my mom got a tree with "pine cones" on it. but these weren't real fake pine cones...they just colored some of the tips of the green branches brown. so it looked like a christmas tree with poop (gross i know but that's really the best description). totally had no resemblance to pine cones whatsoever! so when lance called tonight to ask what i thought about a tree with pine cones, i told him not so much...even though these were real fake ones, my parents first artificial tree ruined the idea of pine cones on a christmas tree for me.
so we'll see what he comes home with. i told him if there wasn't a pretty one, me and tanner would find one tomorrow (yup, last time we bought a tree i made us go to multiple places...to make sure we got the prettiest one but it's also gotta be a good deal!). hopefully i can post a picture of our beautiful new tree with LOTS of lights tomorrow!
and for your viewing enjoyment...tanner had a serious case of bed head this morning!
