Tis The Season...

This "tree" subject literally cracks me up! About 7/8 years ago (I was VERY pregnant) my sweet husband FAILED at placing the tree in the stand and I was beyond annoyed. I held it up, then we would both step back and look at the slanted tree. He'd complain saying the tree was fine and I would complain. Finally, I had enough. Then he walked over and grabbed a stack of magazines, jammed it under the stand, and walked away!!! This made me so upset and I hated the tree. I mean I was SO MAD at the tree and him for not fixing it the right way. After Christmas passed, the tree was in the front yard for pick up. We decided to go to Lowes because I wanted to paint a wall or two for the New Year. As I'm selecting paint color he is walking our son and daughter around and comes back with a FAKE tree and I almost fell to my knees in tears but I realized marriage has compromises and I wasn't winning this battle. Fast forward to today as the time came to grab out the fake Christmas tree... My blood level started rising and I said that's it I'M DONE! Thankfully my oldest daughter had school off today so we tackled and conquered. We seriously couldn't be happier!

Side note: Second Presbyterian (if you are local) is where we purchased our tree and they put the stand on for me. Such a bonus and the pressure is off the hubs! Win, win ;)
