I am very proud of myself! I only coerced dh to open and shake out about five trees. We had a tree picked out in about 20 minutes, which has to be a record for me. Never mind the fact that it took us 30 minutes to tie the sucker to the top of the van. The guys working at Lowe's were awesome, super sweet to the boys and helpful about trimming and bagging the tree (and, no I wasn't paid to say that, I am not cool enough to be paid to say anything). The tree fits in the house, barely. Its VERY close to the ceiling, but there is just enough room to squeeze in a star.
