I used the same pattern as I did with Olivia's unicorn. There's really not much more to say about it. =)
But the tree...
Lord, the tree.
We waited until the last minute to put up a tree. I made a deal with the girls that they could have the tree if they cleaned up after themselves, and they failed to keep their end of the bargain. So we waited until this past weekend. Bill was supposed to come home Saturday night and I'd help him get our artificial tree out of the attic. He was late, I was tired. I went to bed. I woke up at 2:30 am to loud voices. We had a tree. Not the one in the attic, though.
Bill cut it down himself. It was growing at work, in the fence behind the dumpster.
I can't make this stuff up, guys.
A little too tall
But he was so happy. I don't really like real trees. I don't like the smell and they're messy. But he was happy. So, we decorated it.
We had to secure it to the wall.... it fell over twice.
Yeah, he went there.
It's a Charlie Brown Christmas, y'all!
It's not staying up much after Christmas. Bill didn't even put water in the stand...
I can hear it now... in 20 years "Isabelle, do you remember the year Daddy brought home that tree from the dumpster at work?" Making memories....
Merry Christmas, you guys! From my crazy family to yours!
