We set an Adams' family record of finding the perfect tree in less than 15 minutes! Last year, it took hours and two trips to the farm, and LOTS of grumpy tree hunters (I really like a perfect tree, it is an important part of the tradition). This year, in 25 minutes we had pictures, had it cut down and on top of the burb! Yay! Notice the smiling faces? Last year, there was NONE of that!
We have this tendency to get super large trees...this year was no exception. It took four men to get the tree on top of the burb, and then we had to drive about 5 miles an hour to get home. The girls would gasp every time they'd see too many tree branches out their side of the car and put Spencer and I into a heart stopping panic. Easy tree finding, scary drive home. We made it, and will decorate it tomorrow. If I can figure out how to take good indoor tree photos, I will post the final product. My house smells SOO Christmasy, I love it!
