I can’t help it. I am just in the mood to decorate for Christmas a bit early this year.
I blame the snow (more of which is coming today) …
So …. let me tell ya a little story that will make you laugh (or maybe just smile) this Monday morning …
We bought our real Christmas tree, and since we were so early, there was no one there to wrap it up … or cut it … or help us tie it onto the van.
But we thought we could handle it, no problem.
So, with three kiddos, one dog, and in the freezing cold … we finally got our tree securely tied to the top of the van!
Then guess what??!?
Turns out … You need to be able to slide the doors closed after securing the tree. Which you can’t do if there’s twine in the way. Minivan rookies!!
Switching hears, and on a more positive note …. I did, however, have some success with making a quick wreath:

Tell me … do you have a tree yet (or do you think we’re crazy like the folks at Lowes did when we were buying it)? Are you a real or faux kinda tree family? Ever tried to tie it on the minivan before closing the doors?!?
And in case you’re still concerned about our tree … We ended up shoving the whole thing inside the van. Anyone want to come clean pine needles out of every inch of our van now?!?
