Christmas Tree Fun

The tree in all its glory
We decided to get our first Christmas tree this year since we have room and are going to be home for most of the month. This was very exciting. Our first tree! Well, things fell through for a few weeks and the weather was suppose to be terrible (which it wasn't) so we decided to just buy a tree from a tree farm. We really didn't think things through very well because when we found the perfect tree, paid for and put it on top of our car, we had nothing to tie it down with. Ooops! the hubby ended up sitting in the back seat with the window rolled down, holding the trunk of the tree on top of the car. It was a cold ride.
After we got the tree home we had to cut the bottom of it off. We do not have a saw so the hub decided to use our NEW kitchen knives. He thought that because the man doing the demo on the knives cut through wood that he could too.(in my defense he also cut through a steel bar)

We started and got through about 1/2 a centimeter until the knife got too waxy. We then borrowed a saw from my uncle and got the tree inside to decorate with our seven ornaments. Looks good huh. Happy Holidays!

Right after we set up the tree we got a call from my bro, he and the fam were at the parents house and best of all they brought Lil'Mil it was a good time.

Lil'mil wants the camera and the hat.

We are getting to know each other.

You can't tell here but lil'mil is jumping. He likes to jump.

Love the post guys. I was going to post about our Christmas tree, but it's not as exciting. We got a fake one from Walmart. We don't really have room, but we made it work. It's so fun to have our first tree!

Believe me I know all about the knives, I will testify that they can cut through anything! Well maybe not a tree huh!

Looks great guys. I got a good laugh:)

cute tree! much more christmasy than our 12" tree sitting on the table. if we're in town when the fam goes tree hunting, you're definitely in charge of cutting it down.

also, your nephew is freakin' adorable ;)
