"Gary" would have been a funnier name

A far cry from the weensy tree we got last year, my husband ventured out a little earlier this go-around and picked up a decently sized tree.


Growing up in Los Angeles, my tradition of getting a tree consisted of going to a hardware store parking lot and watching my parents buy a pre-cut tree for about $20. 

I still see no problem in paying someone else to do the dirty work of chopping and dragging a tree out of the woods, but my New England-hearty hubs cries "blasphemy!" and insists we (as in he) chop down a fresh one.  Fiiine.


Wavey decided her own tradition will be to name the tree each year.  Why the heck not?  Please meet "Trunk-a-thon."  Unusual, but distinctly Wavey.

I love trunk-a-thon. Super cute!!

Like your hubby, mine also insisted on cutting down the tree...what is that about? Is it a way to proove their "manly-ness?" Not so manly when he has his wife and 2 kids drag it back up the hill!

Great name!! My kids name everything too- like Violette the van. We even sing "go Violette go" when she drives us up a big hill! You know like "go Percy go" from cat in the hat?

It must be a New England thing! We always went out to the tree farm to chop down our own tree! In the freezing cold and snow!! It is all part of the fun!

I thought all Christmas trees in LA were those kind that are fake and pink or white!

Your kiddos are too adorable for words! :D Love that the little guys has gloves on! Cute! Cute! Cute!
