Over the Thanksgiving weekend we did something we have never done before. We bought a "real" tree this year! Growing up we both had real trees most years but together this is a first. With the help of Edie we carefully selected the skinniest, shortest tree we could find (or so we thought). When seeing your tree outdoors it appears to be much smaller than it really is people! So once our skinny/short tree was lit with over 1100 lights that I WRAPPED BY HAND we brought it indoors to see how HUGE it really was! None the less we love it. It smells great and looks beautiful and it will make Christmas 2011 a memorable one if we can keep it alive for the next 21 days :)
Oh and ROLL TIDE!!!!
