We are going to have to drag our one home on foot as both our cars are snowed in!

We’re picking out a Christmas tree.
Oh boy, I just can’t wait!
December 25th is near––
It’s time to celebrate.
The family piles into our car
and finds the biggest lot.
“Let’s get the best,” my mother says,
“the very best they’ve got!”
But this one’s crooked, that one’s short,
and those are almost dead.
The rest have broken branches, holes,
or something worse instead.
Five hours pass and still no tree;
my dad’s about to break.
“You want the perfect tree?” he growls.
“Then let’s go buy a fake!”

=)

PS. This was written after a particularly difficult tree shopping excursion. Good news is that we still don't buy a fake! heehee

Ohhh we put up our tree this weekend! Stopped on the way home from the lot and got some Tim Hortons Coffee and Hot Chocolate. Very Canadian:)

Just about anything related to Christmas puts a smile on my face.

I wish we lived in a place to get our own tree. Trees in Arizona would probably dry out in 2.5 hours. Just kidding, people DO get real trees, but wish we did. :) Have fun!
