Hello hello! How are you? What are you as much as this holly jolly weekend? We have now an Elf social gathering with mates – all the children are sporting pajamas and watching Elf – a party, I train barre and practice a number of shoppers, and making tamales at my mother’s home. In my mind, it’s January already, however I’m attempting to take pleasure in the previous couple of weeks of this yr as a lot as doable. I’d love to listen to what you could have occurring!
Compulsory yearly tree pic! This one is a GIANT – a 15-ft magnificence.
Soooooooo after I first noticed this tree, I advised the Pilot that it was the one. I then proceeded to wrap my arms round a number of branches in a joyful embrace, however my bubble was shortly burst after I realized the value of mentioned (disposable) tree. We walked round for a short while and located a few 10 ft ones we favored simply as a lot, after which one of many workers got here again over to us and mentioned, “We’ll provide you with a deal on the massive one.”
Offered to the woman within the Sakara sweatshirt with the ballerina and astronaut lol.
We needed to get the tree delivered because it wouldn’t match on our SUV. It took 4 guys, together with the Pilot, to hoist the tree. There have been needles everybody and it takes up half of our lounge. It’s perfection and we’re dwelling it up in pure Griswold style. Whereas I can’t say this will likely be an yearly factor, it’s AWESOME to have this yr. I ought to have taken a video of the Pilot and myself attaching the star utilizing a 16 ft ladder, an 8 ft ladder, a Swiffer, and a brush.
Price it and the home smells superb.
One other random journey: one of many Pilot’s work Christmas events. It was late 1800s Western theme, so a number of fancy clothes, pretend mustaches, and cowboys….
