Meet George

We were a little late getting a tree this year, but once we met "George" we knew we found the right one. On Monday night we headed out with Miss Eg (my mom) to look for a tree and surprise Daddy. We needed a few essentials at Target first so we looked there to see if they had any trees and we lucked out. Not only did they have our tree but it was only $35! Last year we paid $130 for our tree!! This was a much easier experience and the people at Target were so nice and even loaded "George" into the van for us.

When we pulled up we saw that Daddy had beat us home and the kids were so bummed. He was working late that night and we were hoping to have the tree up by the time he got home, but alas we were too late. We told the kids to tell him we met a tall guy named George and that he was going to come stay with us for a while. Well as soon as we told him Dax busted out with, "Yeah, it's a tree!". Silly boy!

Rudy liked the tree as well and decided it made the perfect lookout spot to watch over the kids.
