I wish it wasn’t almost midnight and that I had actually taken some pictures of our evening. If you read my recent post about Eco-Advent Calendars you remember that I am taking a cue from a friend of mine and doing something fun with my family each night. It’s Day 3 and I just started!
Tonight we went searching for a new Christmas tree. We were all over the place this year but I knew I wanted something new (real, fake, palm, or pine). We ended up settling on a new fake tree. I know there is so much eco-ntroversy over which is better for the environment but at $88 this tree will last us another 10 years! We are finally retiring our original tree from when we first moved in together. I think 10 years is good for the environment don’t you? And it’s not trashed…it will go to a good home where it can get a second life.
Anyways…we brought our tree home only to realize we bought the wrong one! Boo! Thankfully hubby ran quickly back to the store to exchange it. In the brief 20 minutes that he left Big B and I made Rice Krispie Treats together! He loved watching the marshmallows melt and adding the cereal to the bowl. He’s really such a big help these days. Lil’ B watched excitedly from her high chair…wondering what all the fuss was about!
The best part of the night was everyone sitting down together eating our treat! I wonder what we’ll do tomorrow…maybe we’ll at least find some time to put the ornaments on the tree!
