so this is danny, fyi this is my first blog post so it might be a little rough. you should have seen us trompin around the christmas tree lot looking at all the possibilities. there were some pretty sad looking trees out there; either it was too lopsided, or too short, or too fancy, or too expensive, or too fat (i sound like pongo from 101 dalmations). then we saw it, and it was a light from heaven and angels singing (kinda like chevy chase christmas vacation). anyways we were really excited to get a real christmas tree. as most of you probably know, our car isn't the biggest thing out there, but its got quite the trunk!
so we loaded it in and drove home, where we started preparations for Christmas. we got the big light bulbs for the tree, which is funny because me and my friends used to steal them off people's houses and put them under door mats and then ring the doorbell and run away... when they came out on the doorsteps to look for us they would step on the bulbs and they would pop really loud and we would laugh and run off! (sorry you married such a nerd jess) we bought blue ornaments, jessie was nice enough to go with my favorite color, and we got red snowflakes. apparently everything comes with glitter on it nowadays because there was so much glitter on our hands after decorating the tree. we made quite the memory getting our first Christmas tree together, and jessie's first ever real Christmas tree. we already have 6 presents under it, which isnt the true meaning of Christmas but its still fun to count!
