The Great Christmas Tree Search

Don't let this picture fool you. BellaRose was a champ when we went to look for a Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. Who wouldn't be happy to be out following their mom while she looks for the perfect Christmas tree in 37 degree weather with 50 mph wind gusts!? Poor girl had tears rolling down her face from the wind, but she never once cried or complained. Because she was SO good she even got her own 2 foot Christmas tree. He is like a mini version of the fat guy I got. You will be happy to know he is perfect! I will show you pictures once he is properly decorated. I just needed to brag on BR for a minute.

#2 is still just kicking. She is now 2lbs according to Baby Center and is the size of a head of cauliflower. They always make her into some vegetable or fruit. I would much prefer examples such as a cheeseburger, fries, spaghetti, sushi, cupcakes, you know things I can relate to. I told Worth she was a cauliflower head, and he said "I like cauliflower". I am 27 1/2 weeks, I had a picture for you, but my belly button looks weird so maybe later on that one too. I can't believe that I am almost (or am I in it, I still don't know) in my third trimester! WOW!













































All the boxes of Christmas decorations to sort through. This really is one of the most wonderful times of the year!

BR is truly a mountain girl! I bet she has a blast decorating her tree! -- And congrats to you on finding your perfect tree! Let Christmas begin!

Oh what a little trooper! Sorry you didn't have inches of snow but it sounds like it was so fun anyway. Of course you got a big fat one. I am looking forward to seeing it all decorated and beautiful!

I have no idea about trimesters either! We decorated for Christmas this weekend too! I bet that Cauliflower will be a trooper just like her big sister and soon you will have fat trees in every room!

Sweet little BR. I LOVE her tree and cannot wait to see yours. I am sure it will be gorgeous!!

I'm glad BR was a trooper, she didn't look really happy in that photo.. but the weather was insane this weekend in NC so I can understand being cold and somewhat miserable! And her cute own tree! that's sweet! Can't wait to see it decorated!

what a cutie little tree! Can't wait to see your real tree- you always have the best one. Ours is tiny and we can't have any decorations b/c wdp pulls them off- sigh...I shall live through your tree this year!

I totally agree about the vegetable analogies-- so boring! I mean what if she's really the size of one huge Cinnabon!?! Way more exciting!

I'm all for fat trees too. Our chubby tree is twinkling beautifully right now and is kind of making me forget it's freezing inside!

BellaRose is so lucky she has a tree all her own!!! And such a brave girl she was!
