Well I, of course, honored my husband's plea to relief HIM of the stress of fussing with all that, which in turn would relief the rest of us too
Well.......... we didn't use the tree we already had... he continued to put off hauling it up out of the basement! I finally realized it was'n't just the lights he was dreading... it was the putting in the 300 branches that have to be sorted, fluffed and slipped into place--he didn't want to build the tree this year... SIGH, okay okay, the kids are very anxious at this point and I'm trying to give the "I love you so much, Hon" look...but it came across as the "Hurry up and figure this out or else" look and out came.. "let's just go out in the woods and CUT one down! " Omgosh--- that was the best idea ever, Adrienne thought--she was all excited! Ash on the other hand was like hmmm, well she said, "That is what you're supposed to do really, right mom, go cut one down?!" I smiled and said it surely was! We bundled up and headed out into the woods on our property....We found a TREASURE!
