We went to Target the week after Thanksgiving to get our Christmas tree. Yes we are of the few very rare, here we've found, who still go for the real deal. We wouldn't want daddy to miss out on cutting open, shaking out, and spinning around half the trees in the lot for us! We also always each pick out one new ornament for the year. Elizabeth got a silver reindeer, Ethan got a lightening mcqueen ball, mommy got colored sparklers, and daddy has to go to the sportmans store to find his. Just something fun we do. This year it was a little more difficult to focus on the tree while we chased runaway Ethan at the same time.
