On Thursday night Mom, Dad, and I went to Dewey's for pizza and then over to St. Peter's to get the Christmas tree. We literally ended up getting the second tree we picked out.
We brought it through the window that night so the branches could fall down a little bit, and it would start making the house smell lovely. On Sunday before the big tortilla soup dinner, we put on the lights. What normally is a three to four man job, Dad and I did on our own. And because the tree is a lot shorter than we usually get, I even got to put the star on this year!
