Picking out our tree this year was simplified quite a bit being short 2 opinions of the perfect tree. Gerald walked right up to the tallest skinniest tree on the whole lot and was convinced he had found it! The girls and I looked at eachother turned around and kept looking at our options but for some reason we all kept going back to the tall Charlie Brown Tree. We decided that Gerald should have the final say this year in picking the perfect tree after all, he is out numbered 3-1 these days in just about everything. After a little trimming on top and more on the bottom our Charlie Brown Tree is a perfect fit!
Our favorite part of getting our tree every year is picking out a tree for the missionaries as well. Delivering it to their door without being seeing is always exciting and keeping a secret proves to be near impossible. This year we have a set of Elder and Sister Missionaries so it was twice the fun!
Trevor and his roommate Jordan made it home and were able to help decorate the tree. The Elders even popped in to help too! Between ukulele Christmas Music, trying to get lights to the top of our 15 ft tree and lots of laughter, it officially feels like Christmas!
