We once again visited the quaint tree farm known as Loews to get our tree. The kids were decked out in Santa hats and we were ready to have a fun time finding the perfect tree on this particular chilly and windy night. Fast forward to us pulling out of the parking lot with our tree securely (?) tied to our car and Jamie saying, “Well, that wasn’t as fun as I thought it was going to be.” Miles was loudly protesting the whole time Jamie was tying the tree to our car as well as the whole ride home. The boy does not enjoy the car so much, moving or stationary. Hopefully that will change over the next 2 weeks before we leave on our road trip to VA. I keep having visions of myself squished between 2 car seats for 6 plus hours trying to calm Miles down. If anyone has any xanax lying around, feel free to send it my way.
It took us a full week to get our tree decorated because one of us was usually needing to hold Miles while the other was tending to Elly, but it’s finally done and I love it! As an added bonus our star is actually straight this year thanks to Grandpa. I do feel a little guilty though because Elly has a bunch of ornaments on the tree whereas Miles has, well, none. Hopefully Santa will bring him some for Christmas. Elly is pretty gentle with the ornaments and has not attempted to open one present yet. Sweet Miles has enjoyed looking at all the lights and ornaments too.
