Deck the condo with boughs of holly!

This weekend we went to cut down our very first REAL christmas tree! The farm was literally around the corner from our development... and had THOUSANDS of trees! Who knew it was even there this whole time!

It was a fantastic day to be out and we brought Scooter along to help us find the perfect tree.

wearing his Bah Hum Bug Shirt!
 Looking thru rows and rows and rows of trees... G says to me, "if you're an indecisive person, picking out a Christmas tree at this place is probably not a good idea!" and he was right... i felt like we were there for hours... which we were, 2 to be exact. But in the end, he found the perfect tree for our house!
Look ma, let's go this way!

And here it is!
 G decided he would cut down the tree...
8' tall
Here he is attempting and then GIVING up cutting it and turning it over to the pro...

And finally getting it to fall... it was a lot of effort, the tree guy said it was "the hardest tree he's ever had to cut down"

We got it on the car...

Up 3 flights of stairs, and into the house....

Scooter stole Rudolph and wouldn't give him back!

And G set up the mantle... can we say queer eye for the straight guy!
Jets stocking - hubby; Hello Kitty stocking - wifey!

And i finally finished putting the tree together yesterday afternoon. After breaking out in a rash from the needles pricking my arms. Yup, allergic to the tree... which prompted this conversation:

Both my brother and G, such comedians...

At the end of the day I was able to relax and enjoy our first tree.

Now I just hope I can keep it alive til Christmas! Eek!
