I took this one, before bringing the tree in.
On Friday Owen made a wish, that tomorrow (Saturday) would be a great day. I think it came true! We went out Friday afternoon to pick out a Christmas tree. I was thinking 8-9 foot. Jake found his dream tree, an 11 footer!!! As he was standing there holding it, Owen looks at me and says, "This isn't going to work, is it?" He is ever so wise beyond his years. But Jake insisted it was the perfect tree, so we got it. After cutting a few inches off the trunk and the branches falling open a little it is actually about 10 1/2 feet. And Jake was right, it IS perfect! Today we went out and bought new lights, green and red balls and a star for the top. We got all the rest of our decorations out and the house looks great. If you ask me, today was a GREAT day!!!
Spoke too soon!!! The tree just fell over!!!! No one got hurt, but now we need to figure out what to do.
