It’s kinda beginning to look a little like Christmas here at the GRITS house. And I mean just a little!
Long story short, due to helping a friend out during a time of illness, we cannot get to our usual Christmas tree or decorations in our storage room this year.
Most people would probably be excited and use it as an excuse to get all new stuff. Not me. Because I am cheap.
Today we ventured out to a local Christmas tree farm to find the tree of our dreams.
We had a little help in sizing up our needs, meet Shorty and his little friend McShorter:
Apparently someone was taking too long choosing the tree and our helpers needed to rest their weary souls in the farm’s front loader bucket thingy:
Here’s the best part of the trip:
This just might qualify me to be a member of THAT family society.
Yes, that is my car with a Christmas tree tied to the roof! Where have you seen that done before??
Exactly! Christmas Vacation! A holiday favorite.
Well, we certainly looked like the Griswolds with the tree strapped on top of the car.
And, thankfully, we made it home without any sort of Christmas tree incident.
And due to our pre-scheduled Alabama football game, which we are not going to talk about, this is as far as we got with our decorating:
I am now trying to decide what to do about the ornament situation. Any suggestions from you decorating people??
Since I cannot get to my current collection of the world’s cutest Hallmark Ornaments, I was thinking about going with a typical CHEAP ball ornament theme since I have to get other usual decorations…..tree skirt, stockings, etc…which are 50% off at Hobby Lobby!
I am on call for 24 hours on Sunday and Tuesday, so I am thinking the tree will have to wait for me until sometime Wednesday.
Stay tuned, Christmas loving folks……Christmas at the
Griswolds GRITS house is coming…..one day and decoration at a time. Until next time, enjoy this :
