Enough with the pictures, I'm off to hair and make-up trailer.
Apparently we picked a popular day to go because it seemed reminiscent of my Black Friday experiences. While there was no running or ripping open glass display cases, people were not in the best mood. It can get a little testy picking out the perfect Christmas Tree. The biggest challenge seems to be standing with a tree long enough to let the stupid branches fall to see if it is full enough. When someone did find a nice tree they would suddenly have 5 people ask them if they were going to buy it.
"No, I don't think I will buy this perfectly shaped tree that I stood with for 20 minutes while the branches dropped. Why don't you take it so you can cut out the tedious work. I'll head back over to the huge pile of trees to try and find another one."
I mean are people really that stupid?
It was tough work finding a
After we got the
She comes out and was like 'what is that, it looks awful.' "Why did you get clear lights?"
This is where my palm met my face. "Really, I don't think I could confirm the fact that you wanted clear lights any more."
These were her exact words, "Oh, I wanted clear lights sprinkled throughout the tree and colored lights at the bottom." Maybe you all can clear up my misunderstanding from what I described above.
So there I was trying to figure out the Christmas light origami to get the stupid clear lights back on the plastic clips and into the box.
Back to Lowes. "Sir, is there anything wrong with these lights?" "No, I just apparently don't understand the English language as my wife sees it and I though clear meant clear lights, not colored lights." All I got from the girl was a puzzled look. Oh well, the great light caper was finally over.
Here are some long awaited pics from the tree pickin':

It started out as a normal Monday, I went to work, came home, Rian went off to her Junior League meeting (buy a cookbook), and I started the Critters dinner. This is were the night took an interesting turn. CarCar said that she was on the interweb and did some research on raves. She decided that we would have one in the living room. Unfortunately, I found out that we were ill prepared for such an event. We didn't have the obnoxious house rave acid punk music, glow sticks, hundreds of hopped up teenagers, smoke machine, illicit drugs (hopefully you all know this is a joke, we abide by the lovely Nancy Reagan and "Just Say No"), and laser light show. CarCar pondered for a minute, went and dug around in the magical toy box, and came back with her laser globe thing that Grandma Kate got her.
CarCar told me to hit the music. "What music," I ask? She told me that Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon would have to do. I comply and walk back into the room to this:
Crazy Globe o' Light.
After a couple of minutes and with a strong push by Brother to eat, we ended our rave. It started as quickly as it ended. Unfortunately some of the Critters wanted the rave to last long into the night, but it was not to be. Back to the real world of dinner, baths, and bottles.
It just doesn't have the same effect with the lights on.Chris

We headed up the Pumpkin Patch at Faith Presbyterian Church, same as Trunk or Treat, to pick out our pumpkin this year. We were accompanied by our awesome Critter-sitter Lindsay. Let's just say that we began our search for our pumpkin a little late this year, it was slim pickins. After circling the "patch" a half dozen times we finally agreed on one.
Here our a few picks from our journey:

Same picture with a little editing.
We were having a great time but it unfortunately went downhill quickly, you see, the Critters were just too excited about Trunk or Treat they forgot to take naps. Hadley was in prime form that night in an epic melt down. We had to quickly usher the Critters home and get them to bed. It was a great time while it lasted and hopefully next year we can stay a little bit longer.
