NaBloPoMo Day 4

Today we finally got the Christmas tree up. It's always a crazy and yet very fun process. We turn on the Christmas carols and everyone helps out. Izzy always eats the flakes that fall off the tree and gets sick but it's her part of the fun I guess haha. First we went with just a pile of lights and a craft tree. What do you think? My idea is it was a lot easier to put up and take down. It probably would have been kind of boring after awhile. Jeremiah giggled. Then I told Jeremiah to come here and we decorated him.

He said he would probably get sick of standing there. I told him if he was a Christmas tree he would get out of doing school. He very excitedly said Yeah. I told him he was in trouble for being so excited about it. (He's home schooled if you don't know so you can get the joke)

Then we finally caved in and put up the actual tree. This is my Grandma and Grandpa Faust's tree. They had it up for more than 20 years she thinks. My Grandpa was throwing it away the day of the auction when they moved and mom saved it out of the trash. I love putting it up cause it's such a family heirloom. We have such an eclectic mix of ornaments. It's just so us. Now it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.


By the way in case you were curious the party went fine last night. The food was SOOO good. I'm just so glad we didn't have to pay for it. It's a very expensive restaurant here in Fort Wayne. We had delicious appetizers, yummy salad bad, unbelievable Filet Steak, and Fred got a CRAZY delicious dessert. I couldn't eat anymore so I decided to pass on the dessert. We had a nice time. I'm glad it's over but so glad we went.


  1. I vote for the second tree...that's the best looking tree I've seen in a very long time!

  2. Looks like you had a lot of fun deciding on what tree to use, lol.
