A day in the life…

December 22

Every year when Superman and the chips/chip go to pick out the Christmas tree, I beg…beg…beg them to please, please, please pick out a smaller tree.


ginormous tree

And every year they come home with a ginormous monstrosity.

This year was no exception.

Superman ended up cutting off almost 3 feet of trunk just so it would fit.




I want a smaller tree for several reason.

1. We don’t have enough ornaments for a huge tree.

2. Our house is small, and therefore there isn’t. room. for. a. huge. tree.

party animals

3. It is exhausting work decorating such a large tree.

  2. By the looks of things, if the tree fits your living room then so will the car.

  3. That is a gorgeous tree, and I love the amount of ornaments you have on it…it lets the lovely tree branches and lights really shine, which is my favorite part. Gorgeous, gorgeous.

  4. That’s why I always make sure to help :) We have a tiny, tiny living room, and 4 kids. We also didn’t have many decorations until the last couple of years when I got smart and bought a bunch in the week after Christmas when they were marked down by about 50%. This year I actually had decorations left over!
