O (Husband) Christmas Tree

This is our first Christmas in our new house. Last Christmas (our first one together), we had room for only a small, Charlie Brown tree. (It did make for a cute tree, though.) Now, for the first time, we can finally put up a full-size tree! I was anxious to go shopping to find the (fake, but full-size!) tree that we would call our own. I went to a few different stores and noted the different options and prices. I finally found one that I thought would work. It was pre-lit, tall, and reasonably priced. I gave Husband all the details on it. He said, “Sounds great. Why don’t you buy it?” I told him, “Well, the only thing is that it’s not as full as some of the other trees. It’s tall and skinny.” Husband said, “What’s wrong with tall and skinny?” We both paused for a second and then laughed in unison when we realized that the description also fits Husband perfectly. I bought the tree. For the first time in my life, I do not have a Charlie Brown tree. Instead, we have a [Husband’s full name] tree. So, tall and skinny it is. If it can work so well for marriage, I think it can work for Christmas.

We're actually going tree shopping today, and have our eye on what the store calls a "slim" tree. We like the look of them, they seem to have a certain elegance. Plus they're easier to really fill up with ornaments, giving a nice decorated look. Enjoy!

This is the first year (in many years) we've bought a live tree. My daughter is thrilled. My allergies are not :)
