The Grand Tree!!!!!

Monday, December 14, 2009







So here she is...in all her 12 foot glory!!!!

Ain't she just a beauty????

She almost kicks our butt's every year with all her 12 feet of limbs, 5 huge pieces and cords that could incircle the earth 10 times and plugs that should hook up to heaven only knows...not to mention the 2 tall ladders required to be perfectly stationed on either side of her....it is a major task we under take every year...and just when we think we have it down to a science....well.....we don't!

So, I must say a HUGE thank you to my wonderful husband for all the grunts, tugs, pulling, lifting, balancing, mumbling under his breath, here hold this steady here for just a sec, oh, wait...this cord needs to go...oh, hang on I have a cramp in my...wait...I need a male plug to go with this female one over here and.....well crap.....there is no way that one is gonna streach all the way down there.......

........taaaaadaaaaaaa.....

she's done!!!!!!!

So who's gonna come help me take her big butt down after Christmas???????

Kris said...

AMAZING! Mine is oh... 4 ft? hehe

Samantha said...

Wow, what a beautiful tree! I'm only 5'1" so I'd have a heck of a time trying to decorate a tree that tall, even with a ladder!!

Kristi said...

It's so pretty!! I barely have the patience for the decorations on our tree and its only 7 foot. I am going to tell my parents since they helped put mine up because I was sick they have to help take it down. Maybe they can come help!!

About the "B" hanging on my mirror I actually just got it a few weeks ago at hobby lobby and painted it. I am going to keep it up all year round, but I used Christmas ribbon for now.

Jenna said...

OH wow, Trish, I do not know what happend to my post o you last night, in a comment. I did get the ornaments yesterday! I love them so much! The snowman candles are just the cutest! They are darling! I had even said, please don't worry at all about when you mailed them. It wasn't a problem at all. Please know that! I had planned to take pictures tonight and post tonight, but I will do it tomororw. We had a meeting about adoption today, and it took so much longer than I had planned. I'm sorry you were worried. I got the ornaments yesterday though. THey were probably at hte post office last week, but we live an hour from there, and we have had the flu and an accident. So I had not been able to go there. Please forgive me! And your tree is beautiful!!!
Wishing youa nd your family a wonderful and blessed Christmas!
