Tears were even almost sought after when he brought in the first tree. Yes, the first.
Thank goodness that he finally came to terms, and we headed for Lowe's. We spent about 20 minutes, picking up trees, asking questions, finding some dead ones, and then finding the perfect tree. But 20 minutes to get the perfect tree, I would take any day over the stress we had just endured.
We get the tree home and brought inside before we realize that the bottom is going to have to be cut as well. I stood holding our tree for a good 10 minutes while Curtis went to the barn to get trimmers. After a lot of whispering curse words, vacuuming needles and frustration we finally got our tree into the stand.
Holy haystacks. I wish I could half way explain to you how funny yet stressful this entire tree adventure was. I was pretty sure that one of us was not going to live to see Christmas day, but we made it and only spent $42.75 taxes and all on our tree...it was totally worth it too.
