Yes... it's official... we're suburbanites!
I never thought this moment would come.
A HOLIDAY SOAP DISPENSER!
HOLY COW! This is big time. We must truly be settling into life in surburbia. This soapman was so cute, I had to buy him. Adam loves snowmen, you know. He is quite cute... and smells of Vanilla. We'll call him froth-ty!
Today, we ventured out to get our first (as a couple) REAL Christmas tree! For years, we've been using a fake one from Walgreens... it kinda resembled the Charlie Brown tree. This year, we decided to go for the real deal.
Here we are, at the Lion's Club Tree Lot in Worth. Trying to find the prettiest tree.
Adam tells Carole all about how to select the perfect tree...
Carole: It is freezing. I like this one.
Adam and Mr. Lion's Club man carry off our tree to the car.
Into the trunk you go! And it's off to the house!
Adam puts together the tree stand.
And puts the tree in the stand... how manly :)
A little actual tree trimming so it fits in its designated spot...
And now for some real tree trimming! The skirt...
Remember Frosty, our only yard decoration from last year? He's come out to help decorate. Pink sparkes! His favorite!
Carole hangs her 13th ballerina ornament of the night.
The finished tree! Looks a little lopsided here, but hopefully the branches will drop a little overnight.
That's all for now!
One last thing... We just saw the movie Lars and the Real Girl on Wednesday. It is fantastic, and also has a wonderful score. I highly recommend this movie! Check it out!
