We've got winter weather and it's still autumn!
Handsome and I went out and found a tree. Our first year married we went to a tree farm and cut one down. Last year we skipped the Christmas festivities. This year it was a trip to Lowe's. It was still fun. We brought the critter home and found that our tree trunk was too large for the stand we had…so back to the store for a stand that would hold our tree.
We only have one criteria so far for the kind of tree we look for. It must be taller than H.
We only have one criteria for decorating. It must have LOTS of big bulb lights.
After we get those things out of the way, we go after the decorating. H. likes tinsel. I like TONS of ornaments. We both like the memories attached to some of the ornaments. For both of us the tree is about sentiment.
H. turns FORTY this week and we'll have folks in to celebrate this weekend. It'll be nice to have the house decorated.
