Our Tiny Tree

December 27, 2009 at 2:37 pm (Musings...)

I have not blogged for a while… that will change.  You will once again be able to glimpse into my mad mad world.  I have been going through some changes ~~ both physically and spiritually, but I digress… back to the tree.

For the past three years I have been asking, no begging darling DannyO for a smaller tree.  We have the room for a big tree, but I no longer have the balance to decorate a tall tree — that whole ladder thing is dangerous for my health 🙂

This year, with a promise of a smaller tree, Dan and his brothers began their day-long search.  Unfortunately, Dan was on call and became swamped with work.  The tree choosing was left to his brothers…

We brought it into the house wrapped and I couldn’t see its full glory until it was unfurled in our living room… I wanted to weep!  In fact, I think I pouted just a bit.  Danny recognized that indeed the task was too daunting for me, so he took last Monday off from work and we decorated it together.  It only took 8 hours!

When we were finished, he asked me to stand next to the tree and put my arm in the air.  As I complied with his request, I asked him why.  He said, “So I know how tall of a tree to get next year!”  I love that man!
