Buddy found our tree this year. It didn't take long. It just so happened that the right one was in front. It was early on a Sunday morning, so not many people were out and about yet. The Christmas tree shop was just setting out all their trees. We arrived at just the right time. Buddy and Ella stood guard by our tree while Joey took care of the business of paying.
Ella tinkered with the golf cart while the men readied the tree for transport. First, they had to shake off the tree and ruffle its branches to get rid of all the loose needles. Then they tied it up with rope.
We made a pit stop by the beach for a Christmas card photo op. Joey has been wanting to take our Christmas tree to the beach for a picture for the last two years.
I'll put a picture of our fully decorated Christmas tree in a later post. Michael and Ella have been busy little helpers with Nining - each getting their own undivided Nining time. First, Buddy had a sleepover last weekend to help decorate her tree and flat and yesterday, Ella went over to make shortbread cookies. Naem and Jared arrive on Thursday evening followed by Grandad and Poochie the following week. Christmas is nearly here!
Here's hoping all of you are enjoying the traditions of Christmas with your families too.
