Step 1: Get The Tree Into The House!

Jennie and I went to Mutch's Christmas Tree Farm today to pick up our Christmas tree.  All I can say is, thank goodness for double doors.  The tree is about 10 feet tall and 6 feet around.  So far, we've managed to get it in the base with minimal damage to the carpet and ceiling.  Also, we have not killed one another yet, another feat!  :)

I am hoping that tomorrow we will be able to get the lights and other goodies on it.  I'm mostly excited about pulling out my 1940s Lionel Train (complete with whistle, smoke and headlight) to put around the base.  We tried getting decorations done outside over the weekend, but found other distractions (see next post!)
