Now, if it were up to me to pick the perfect Christmas tree it would be an artificial pre-lit one. However, I'm outnumbered, and we get a live one each year. This year it was Bekah's turn to pick the tree out. We went to the Garden Gate nursery by the church and they had beautiful looking trees. It was a cold Saturday night with a few snow flurries in the air. We brought our treasure home and put it in the stand to fall. On Sunday I put the lights on. Monday night we dragged out all the ornaments and placed them on the tree. As we went to bed and Tim began to pray we heard a crash. The tree had fallen over. Thankfully only two ornaments were lost. A new stand and two days later we had the perfect tree that would carry us through the season.
