about 5 years ago we decided to invest in a really nice, albeit fake, Christmas tree. it’s beautiful. it’s pre-lit, 9 feet tall, and looks amazingly realistic. the only problem is it doesn’t smell real. we realized after the first year that we needed that outdoorsy smell of Christmas in our house in december. since then, i have been puting up the 9 foot fakey and buying a second (real) tree to get that sweet smell of the season. this year was no different.
of course, the day we went out it was pouring rain. did that phase us? nope. kim has a thing for going out in the rain. usually it’s just to run around & get wet, but this time we were on a mission. neither rain, nor mud, nor dark of night could thwart our mission.
every year i’m reminded of why we bought a fakey in the first place.
the real ones are bank!
at least the girls had fun walking around in the rain while we looked for our tree.
april tried on my sweet old stussy hat.
i love that hat. i got it when i was april’s age.
kim and i made a cameo appearance.
i loves me kimmi.
just as april started getting worn out…
we found a perfect little tree to take home and call our own.
we love our little tree. it’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas. :)
