It’s beginning to look alot like Christmas

Annual visit to Booger Mountain to find our Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...

We ventured out after work on Friday, December 5th to find our 2009 Christmas tree.  Robert and I began going to a tree lot years ago in Raleigh called “Booger Mountain”.   This tree vendor happened to open shop in Wake Forest the year that Clare was born …it has now become a tradition that we all look forward to every year.   We decorated the tree that Saturday morning.  After nearly 3 hours (lights, decorations, vacuming the needles, tree skirt…) our tree was officially decorated! 

Santa's helper...decorating the tree

Two hours later, Clare and I heard a thunderous CRASH.  They say a picture says a thousand words…check it out… 

Uh Oh!

Tree decorating—take two!  Clearly this was a BIG tree!  Thankfully no one was hurt and as Robert told me…ornaments can be replaced.  Luckily, not ALL our ornaments were glass so we still have lots of memorable ornaments adorning our tree.  😉 
We will be buying a new tree stand for next year…that’s for sure!   Something tells us this will be a Christmas to remember…
