So after it's crazy ride home, our Christmas tree made it into the house.
It actually sat bailed up for a couple of days because I wasn't quite ready for the monster to be unleashed. Once the furniture was moved around and space was made, I gave the go ahead to un-bail it. Chico had Jaxon and Mateo start unwinding the string.
Whoa, look out boys, it's falling!
Good catch Chico!
Well here she is. It's like the Griswald's tree in Christmas Vacation, lol.
Step one, getting those lights on, is my least favorite part. Finally got the star on and the garland, with much wobbling around on the 10 ft. rickety ladder. I'm not totally afraid of heights, but when I have nothing steady to hang onto I get a little fearful.
So here's the final product...
And a few more photos of the house.
And a couple of my favorite ornaments.
Mateo's first Christmas - 2000.
Jaxon's first Christmas - 2003.
Whew, so glad it's finally done!
