Oh Christmas Tree

Yesterday we took hours finding the PERFECT Christmas tree. We were having quite the issue deciding between the above 2 trees. The one me and Spencer are standing by was obviously the better one. For countless reasons.
A. It smelled like Christmas.
B. The other tree smelt of dehydrated apple juice.
C. It is a noble fir.
D. The opposing tree was a douglas. enough said. it was lame.
E. Ours was prettier and had more organized branches.
F. The other one was ugly and had crazy branches going in all directions.
G. Ours was more desirable for hanging ornaments. the home depot guy even said so.
H. The other one was better for ribbons and garlands. we don't do ribbons and garlands.
I. Zac tasted both of the tree trunks and did find that the noble fir was much tastier.

In the end we didn't buy either of them. But, we did buy a noble fir! The original noble fir we were going to buy sorta got demolished by Zac and Spencer playing chop chop timber and doing other nonsense.

Today, we decorated the tree. With all our adorable handmade ornaments from when we were infants. It has loads of character.
Happy Holidays!

13 Things I Certainly Will Do

1. Ride A Whale.
Yes ma'am. I will ride a whale.

2. Take a Fancy Cooking Class In a Fancy Place like England.
That would cool. To learn fancy cooking.

3. Go Skydiving.
I know we all really want to do this. Not too original. But, it's awesome. What can I say I want to do it.

4. Scuba Dive in an Exotic Place.
Like the Great Barrier Reef. That would be a dream.

5. Volunteer at an Elephant Orphange.
Did you know they have elephant orphanges? Well, they do! And I'm going to go and save some Elephants.

6. Learn To Knit.
This is something I am going to do. I know it requires lots of patience. But, I can do it. I really want to knit some hand/leg warmers.

7. Write a Children's Book.
Okay, so people write reaaalllyyy lame children's books. So I was thinking I could add some fun to the bookshelves and get my own book published.

8. Try Every Ben&Jerries Ice Cream Flavor.
Obviously, not all at once. Becuase I would gain 10,000 pounds. But, little by little I will try new flavors and eventually complete this awesome task.

9. Ride in a Hot Air Balloon.
That would be amazing. to just float away in a cute hot air balloon.

10. Own a Nice Camera.
You know, like those fancy cameras good photographers use. Maybe when I'm older and travel the world and have money and what-not.

11. Jump In a Taxi and Yell, "Follow That Car" Real Dramatically.
Now that would awesome. To totally play out a dramatic scene and freak a taxi driver out. Of course, this would require me to take a trip to New York ;)

12. Rent a Billboard.
and just write some happy inpsiring quote or something to just brighten people's days.

13. Volunteer at an orphange.
Becuase I love kids. and I love helping people. and I love traveling. I will do it.

So, this is only 13 awesome things I will do in my lifetime. Obviously, there is a much more. What do you want to do with your life?
