Now that I live in the city where axe-wielding in people's backyards is summarily frowned upon, we set out for Home Depot....
Underneath the fragrant tent, we discussed the merits of branch strength, height vs. width, and Frasier vs. Douglas (pssh! not even a debate!). Our little beauty was easy to spot in the thicket... and of course we had to photo-document...
Eames went from tolerant... to annoyed... to angry (mommy trying to coax)... to angry (mommy gives up and pouts too)... tooooooo.... asleep. Whew. Christmas tree hunting is hard work.
After a nap, he enjoyed the lights on the finished product.
Special thanks to the best supporting actor... Kawa Papa.
