Kids Christmas Tree...

A few weeks ago, we went to pick out a real tree for the kids to decorate on family night. I love having a real Christmas tree in the house, it makes it smell like Christmas & I love to go and try to find just the right tree. This year we stopped at a place by our house, and they even had a big jumping castle for the kids to play on while the older kids & I picked out the tree. We had a great time, and got the tree home only to figure out that the perfect tree had a HUGE base on it that wouldn't fit the tree stand that we had. Todd tried to use our ginsu knife to trim the base down, since he doesn't own a saw, or a chain saw, or many tools at all--he's not that type of "fix it" guy... Anyhoo, after an hour of whittling away, we still couldn't get it to fit so we had to bag it and leave it in the garage to decorate the next day. We went to Home Depot, and they had a large tree base to put it in, so next year we are set either way! We had a great time decorating on Tuesday night--if you don't count all the kids fighting over who got to put what on the tree, where, and when...oh the joy of Christmas! HA~ It turned out great!
