So, as a follow up to a previous post, Mr. Joe did indeed end up letting us get a tree 🙂 I got a little 4 1/2 foot tree and I LOVE it. I didn’t want to get anything too big and overwhelming even though I could have gotten a 6 1/2 foot tree for the same price! Funny thing is, Mr. Joe kept wanting to make it look like a big tree in the pictures. So why couldn’t I just get a big one then?? lol Anyway we decorated today. The photos didn’t turn out as nice as I would have liked, but, what can you do lol. I’m very happy with our little tree and I know Mr. Joe will grow to love it, if he doesn’t already.
I know, he looks so thrilled… lol
Our first Christmas ornament

@Tessa- I hope he made it out of Walmart unscathed! I was at Target on Friday and the store wasn’t too bad. Not too crowded mostly, but for whatever reason, the Christmas lights aisle was AWFUL! Soooo packed! It was annoying because it was like a back wall aisle so you had to try to go through to get to the other aisles unless you turned all the way around (which I did!)
@KM lol he was totally annoyed :p Mostly because of the picture taking lol
But he so doesn’t hate it as much as it looks like he does. Why do I say so? We were about to head out to the grocery store around 5ish, and the timer for the tree lights is set for 5. So he’s all like “lets wait and watch the lights come on.” So I said ok, and 5 rolls around and they don’t turn on. But then I remember he set the timer on the thing according to our VCR clock which is slow. So we waited until the VCR clock says 5 and still nothing. So I just wanted to go to the store and knew they’d be on when we got home. But nope! He wanted to stay and watch lol So we did. 5:06 VCR time they finally turned on lol He still won’t admit that he likes it though and keeps saying he’d rather not have a tree except that it makes me happy. I think it mostly bothers him because we dont really have a spot to hide the tree box after Christmas is over.
We put it up on a box to make it a little higher (I just imagine neighbors and such seeing our tree from the window and all they see is a little top and a star lol) and we put some pressies under it as well. It’s so amazing 🙂 Mr. Joe was trying to tell me that we can sell or donate this tree after Christmas and get a bigger one next year. I told him we can hold off on a bigger one until we have kids.
