We finally did it! We picked out our perfect tree this weekend and cut it down ourselves. Okay, Jon cut it down but I was there for moral support. This was our perfect tree for two reasons: 1) its narrow base fits perfectly in our little living room, 2) it bore the $10 tag. Okay, so it was mainly #2 that we were so excited about, but #1 was still a bonus. When we were purchasing it, the owner chuckled at how sparse the tree was and made a comment about this one needing a lot of tinsel. Listen here buddy, we don't do tinsel and I love my $10 tree, sparse branches, slightly browned lower needles and all. And so does Sam. And my hubs is fairly indifferent. That is all.
Sam helped decorate the tree by pretending to eat the candy cane ornament.
And I felt the need to clarify something on the last post. Jon thought that I had posed Sam for those pictures. For the record, I did no such thing. Those poses are 100% his own, no help needed.
