christmas tree shopping

Here I am, posting about our tree that we got over 2 weeks ago. Apologies, readers. I am so behind in picture posts it’s not even remotely funny…

After Help Portrait on the 4th, the family went out to eat, then headed over to Lowe’s (our usual spot to buy the tree). Since we had been outside since 9AM, we stopped in the heated area to thaw out. It was there I discovered that there was a ECU Christmas. Believe me, I love ECU, but I was NOT going to pay 64 bucks for the tree. Still, it was pretty to photograph…

WE ARE THE PIRATES OF ECU! Okay, I’m good. :)

With rope lights in hand, we came outside and saw this:

Snow, people! On the 4th day of December, that’s unheard of. I was grinning ear to ear and snapping pictures left and right, while the rest of the world made a mad dash to the store for milk and bread.

The boys stopped to catch some snow…

…And Mama talked Clark into smiling for the camera! Can you tell they’re related or what?!

We didn’t find a tree at Lowe’s, so we headed to the second best place for a tree: Food Lion.

OMG with the tongue, boy. Keep it in your mouth where it belongs! :)

After we thought, deliberated, and listened to a father and his son talk about what movie to rent (the trees were right in front of a Redbox), we thought this was the tree…

Turns out it wasn’t, but THIS one was…

All loaded and ready to go, ya’ll! On the way home, the snow picked up and we sang Let it Snow all the way home.
