tree at last, tree at last


My family - they never agree
Too many opinions, you see
so you can just guess
the unholy mess
When we go to pick out our tree.

The dad walked away in despair
Hands thrown up high in the air
then mom grabbed a tree still bound tight
said Let's take our chances tonight
It may be insane but it's fair.

So on to the car it did go
Strapped down through the windows, you know
but the windows stayed down
found next day with a frown
When the whole car was filled with fresh snow.

But all of that's now in the past
The car should dry out pretty fast
the tree's a delight
the kid's faces alight
Everyone happy - at last.

lovely poem, lovely tree, and i totally love the hanging lamp! i think everyone would prefer a real tree, but we ended up going artificial last year. there are photos on my next to last post. do you think if we find some artificial pine smelling spray that will help? nah...probably just end up gagging us w the fakeness lol

Way to go RC. We chose our tree yesterday too - such a joy, isn't it. And Boy #2 can't even talk back yet...

Fabulous RC. Hee hee. And it looks gorgeous. And I love the hanging lanterns too.

Wish I was bright enough to think of some snappy poem to tell you how beautiful your tree looks! The lamp behind it, gives it that extra glow...love it.
XOXO

Well, thank goodness for that. I thought you were going to write that all the needles had blown off the tree or something awful like that. Instead you have a very nice looking tree. Congratulations! I hope the erection was painless. And the decorating too.
