Getting the Tree

Here we go with all the Christmas fun at the Jones home. :)  Isaac built this tower and included the LED Santa that Nanny and Granddaddy got for them. THEY LOVE THAT THING.  :)  Notice he is on...may not turn off til the day after Christmas!

 So as usual, we hit up Lowe's for our tree.  Only this time we made a critical error...we went the Monday after Thanksgiving.  Know what that means?  They have been picked over and won't get a new shipment for a week.  More importantly: no more Frasier Fir trees.  To be more more of my FAVORITE tree that smells really great and holds ornaments like a champ.  No, no instead we had to get a Douglas Fir...basically a Christmas BUSH that is willy-nilly when it comes to ornament holding.  Maybe it will, maybe it won't hold my favorite Waterford ornaments from my sweet Nanny (so I didn't even chance those!).  But it most CERTAINLY will drop billions of needles on your floor per second.  Ugh.  Oh well, you win some, you lose some. (Which, ironically, was also the theme of the pic for our holiday card. *sigh*)  

eh, hemmm.  Where was I?  Oh yes, the Christmas Bush.

So here it is in all it's splendor.

 Cute pic of the Co....til I JUST now saw his finger gesture.  Nice buddy.

 This is true Christmas Joy! 
 Doesn't Daisy look 15 in this pic?  Sheesh!

More to come this Christmas season...

One of her latest things is saying, "Shhhhh!"...cracks us up!
