O Christmas Tree

Every year we got pick out a Christmas tree as a family. Todd loves to get HUGE trees and never takes into consideration our ceiling is only 7 1/2 - 8" feet tall. When he brought the tree in the FIRST time it was too tall. So he brought it back out and cut off a few feet. Tried to bring it in the SECOND time and it was still too tall. Brought it back out again cut some more off (this time he used the tape measure). Took it back in the THIRD time and wa-la! It fit. HOWEVER, he couldn't get it to stay up in the stand. I really had a hard time not laughing through out this entire fiasco! I went to the garage, got the drill, put a hole in the bottom of the tree, put the tree back in the stand and lined the hole up. YEAH! It worked! Our tree is now UP, decorated and looking GREAT!

Merry Christmas!

  1. That cracks me up. I love the big Christmas trees, too, but fortunately we have a two story room where we can put the tree when (if) need be! Your tree looks great, and kudos to you for getting it up already!
