We quickly found ourselves wandering up and down the aisles of the trees in search of THE ONE for us, we discovered that we are a very discerning group. I lean toward preferring the bushier trees and Eric definitely favors trees that are symmetrical. The kids just like to run around and take hold of any tree within arm's reach. Considering it was hovering right around freezing, we weren't in a lolly-gagging mood, but we also weren't going to get just any ol' tree to escape the elements... we're no quitters!!
After a few trips up and down the tree section, we settled on a tree that is perfect for us. The kind lady lopped of the bottom part of the stump and netted the tree for us. We thought ahead a bit (OK, Eric thought ahead a bit... shocker, I know!) (Please note my incredible use of sarcasm there.) and also bought a tarp, saving the car's interior from being embedded with a million pine needles.
The tree got home without incident and after a little furniture rearranging, we now have a beautiful tree in our front room. It smells absolutely glorious!! Tomorrow, we'll cover it in lights and ornaments.... can't wait!
