around here: christmas tree edition
We go to the same tree farm every year. We had to get the tree a little later due to our Jamaica trip, which is actually a really, really good thing. I think we won’t be as sick of a tree inside our house until after the New Year. Sunday was a gorgeous day — warm, but muddy. We trudged along. May wanted to choose a sweet Charlie Brown version, but then John chose it. The perfect tree. It was a bit too tall, so we just took a little off the bottom. It also had a mouse nest in it, which we discovered after it was cut. Two little field mice ran to find a “better home.” Gross, but eh, we couldn’t justify cutting another one down. A beautiful pair of horses took us, and our tree, back to get it shaken. John drove the sleigh. We got home and decorated together, not without broken lights mishaps, but so happy to be together this Christmas season.
