Here we are on our way to get our tree!
And I would love to tell you that we strolled around together for hours finding just the right one, but alas that is not the truth. We basically took these pictures, I loaded the kids back in the car (it was just too cold), and I went home while Nate chose O Tannenbaum.
Wait till my next post and you get to see the tree! When Nate brought it home we discovered that trees are much bigger than you thought once you get them inside your house...in order to get it home and fit it in the house AND stay upright on its own we had to use: a friend's truck, a neighbor's help, a saw, a drill (with special spade bit), rope, a screw-in hook, and a nail. But it's beautiful and smells so good! Now if we can just remember to water it.
