"Christmas Tree, Christmas Tree, Christmas Tree Rock"

Literally. Well, it was rocking a little, before we got it in the stand right. So, Barney said he needed to do an errand on the way home tonight. I was making dinner, thinking that he would just be a minute, and many many minutes later, I heard a thump at the door. Well, at this point, I was pretty much sure he was either tired of the cold weather and took off to Mexico, or he'd been abducted. So, I was a bit nervous to answer, but when I did and saw a huge, beautiful, live Christmas tree, I forgot all about Barney! (Just kidding!) I was so excited that he had bought a live tree! It's the first time I've ever had one, and I love it. (*note my excited and surprised expression to the left.) It's absolutely perfect! See! Look!

Well, it almost looks that good. All it has on it right now is a piece of twine I found and two empty boxes under it. Still, I think it looks pretty beautiful!

It looks great! Nice and plump. My dad would never approve, though, since it doesn't look sickly or have huge branchless gaps. I'm glad you finally got a real tree.

It's gorgeous! Live trees are the only way to go.

Hurrah! I love a live tree! This is the first year my family doesn't have one (at least the first year I've been around they don't have one), and it's sad to me. Nothing like that smell to make the house feel like Christmas.

That's a beautiful tree! I'm so glad you got a real one. Those are the best, despite the fact that I went fake. What a terrific husband you have!

I love having a live tree in the house - it just smells so nice! We had a fake one last year and it just wasn't the same...

Hey - we live like 3 blocks away from each other! We should totally hang out more often :) Are you two up for a date night at our house complete with games and treats? Let me know!
