We have a TREE!!!


Today I was leaving the gym and I hit a wet spot on the stairs and went flying down!!! Amazingly (and I still don't know how this happened) NOTHING happened to me! Except for the utter embarrasment at the fact that I now had 12 complete strangers convinced that I was lying about being hurt, nothing happened. There is one spot in my back that is now a teeny-tiny-little bit sore, but I chalk this up to being a miracle!

We went out and got our Christmas tree today. The original plan was to head out to the woods and chop one down. Unfortunately the day that I was supposed to head out with Grandpa Mark there was a blizzard and I wasn't about to test my newly learned driving skills in a storm in the country side! So Grandpa Mark went out alone and said that there were not any suitable trees. I am thinking we should try again next year ... a Charlie Brown tree might be kinda nice.

So instead my friend Kathy and I ventured out today in the muddy slush (do you have any idea how hard it is to push a cart through sludge????) and bought a tree at Home Depot. Then I spent the rest of the evening decorating with Evan. It was soooo much fun ... and look how pretty it is!!!

Evan and I were sad that Justin couldn't be here with us (he is in Edmonton) but alas we will hopefully have next year to make these memories with him!


I had to include this picture! Evan is a very photogenic child, but there are many times that we get this look while trying to capture a moment. We call it "drug baby" What is funny is that his Tummy Mommy does the same thing!!!!! We have lots of really cute/funny pictures where they are doing it together!!!

LOL! That is so cute.

LOVE your tree! Beeeeautiful!

And yes, I hear you about dragging a cart through this slush. I hope a TON more melts BEFORE the cold and freezing snap this weekend, or we will be dragging carts over Iittle mini icebergs. Now that is even funnier! (Can you tell I am dripping with sarcasm, here? : S)

Glad you are okay after your fall. YIKES!

Love you tree! Sorry about the fall - be careful. Evan does look like a drug baby in that picture.

I love how you've coined the phrase "Tummy Mommy". I think that is so great that you are so willing to talk about her and have a relationship with her.
