December 8

We got our tree today. We usually get it after the Christmas parade on Sunday but since we didn't have much to do today I figured we would get that done. I haven't decorated it yet though. We'll do that tomorrow afternoon after the parade. I did get the lights out to check them and of course half of them aren't working. I'm going to try to go through them and figure out why because they are the good, expensive lights with the 8 function switch. I really don't feel like going out trying to find some more right now.
It was kind of weird shopping for a Christmas tree when it's 86 degree outside! Then we came home and did some landscaping and replanted 2 small trees...sweating our butts off! Another hot day tomorrow for the Christmas parade which sucks because all of my cute Christmas clothes are for cold weather. Guess we'll be in shorts and short sleeved shirts! It's supposed to be in the 80's for the next few days but will be cooler by the end of the next week, finally. But we'll see how long that lasts. I just wish it would snow so the kids could see it and play in it. Ha, like that's going to happen here. But as soon as I finish writing this Eddie has asked me to look for a place in the mountains, maybe upper Tennessee since that's not too far for us. Even though my dream mountain vacation is the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. We used to go there a lot when I was younger to this awesome place called Peaceful Valley. Just need more time to be able to go there. He always takes off the week between Christmas and New Year so we don't have too much time and want to be back for New Year's Eve so we'll see what I can find.
Have a good night =)

You could always head North to MICHIGAN and visit! :) We have snow now. (and more coming down)

We put our tree up today too. It was all but about 20 degrees out today though! Brrr!

Enjoy your warmth. I can't imagine a christmas tree in 80 degree weather though. :)
