Friday, Tony and I embarked to pick it up from them. Tony was also pillaging Dan's programs and such from his computer!
We arrived home to drag the tree into the perfect place. Anna had requested so sweetly that it go in front of the picture window, so everyone could see it!! I had to fulfill the request. The tree is so huge, that it fills the whole area, and I wanted so bad to shove in a corner for the room, but her excited eyes squashed that thought!
She is also barefoot here, cause she squashed right thru some dog poop, so the smell of pine was not the top smell in the house! Oh Tannebaum!! Tony is not a fan of the setting the tree up. The stands we have are never the right one, and we have spent much angst over the uprighting of our Christmas trees in the past. Tension gets a bit crazy!
Gabriel began to learn and learn well under the tutorial of Eric :
Who is that tall kid putting up lights in my living room???
Now the moment you have all been waiting for, the behemoth tree in all it's glory! Every light, every garland, gold bead, and ornament from the box on the tree and we have room for more!!
