Yippee!




Yeah... we found the tree! As we have started our little family we have started the tradition of cutting down our own Christmas tree. The first year we got a charlie brown tree with few branches barely hiding the thousands of lights I drown it in. The second year wasn't much better (getting that tree will require another day and another blog to retell). The third we promised ourselves we wouldn't stop untill the biggest and fullest tree was found and strapped to the truck... at seven months pregnant I slowly followed Shawn through 3 feet of snow with Theo by our sides and Vince in my arms (these are our beloved puppies). As we searched shawn became a bit impatient after a long and unbearable 30 minutes .... I say this with much sarcasm! Well needless to say we left without finding the tree of our dreams again, but we were getting closer! So this year came and we set the standard high once more. We went up to yankee meadows near brian head for the annual hunt. We got stuck as the sun was going down but luckily as we were leaving I had Shawn stop the car so I could check out what seemed to be a great tree... It was the one! It was tall and full.. at least fuller than all the rest. We Finally got it home and decorated it to perfection. That was the start to a great Christmas Season.
