Me: Why are we always buying our tree in the middle of a snowstorm?
Paul: Because we live in Minnesota.
Alex: (screaming and crying) It's too fat!!!
Alex: (screaming and crying) It's too skinny!!!
Home Depot Employee: Do you have any questions?
Paul: Do you know how to handle a 5-year old girl?
Avery: (not loving her puffy coat, trying to squirm out of my arms and run around in the snow, oblivious to the decorating of the tree [hallelujah], but cheering smiling and clapping along with the rest of us when we lit it up!)
Me: (not taking any chances) Higher! Put the ornaments up higher!
Noah: This is the best part of Christmas!
It smells like Christmas too : )
Now if I could just remember to water it this year...
