Christmas Tree Shopping - 2011

This morning, we headed out for our annual family adventure to find our Christmas tree. Yes, I know it is the day before Thanksgiving! However, we are going to Grandma's for Thanksgiving and then Wes is staying behind for his one on one week with Grandma. So, to shop as family, we needed to shop today.

When we were getting ready this morning, Wes asked if I knew where to find a Christmas tree. When I said 'no, where?' he replied with a commanding 'At Santa's workshop!' But, of course Wes. When we arrived at the tree lot, Wes was confused and asked over and over "where are the elves?"

Our trip was uneventful. I don't have a fun story to tell about the tree falling off on our drive home or fun video to post of the boys fighting the Christmas tree. The most interesting part of our adventure was the gentleman running the lot who struggled with math but excelled at sharing his personal life stories about hitchhiking from Maine to Florida three times and getting covered in fire ants.

Andrew wanted every four foot tall tree while Jared and Wed wanted the HUGE oak tree in the middle of the tree lot.

We got our tree home and placed in the tree stand before packing up to head off to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving. We will decorate when we get home.

Note - this is my first post using the new Blogger app for the phone. I am anxious to see how this turns out. If it works more, you may see more posts from Team Darnell!

I hope you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving.

Take care,
