Ginormous Tree

tree last night

And tree today

The last couple of weekends we didn't get around to getting a Christmas tree, which was fine because we are leaving for Iowa for Christmas next friday and we wouldn't get much enjoyment out of it anyway, and I still put up holiday decorations so it at least felt Christmasy at home.
On post they give away free trees to Soldiers, so Wade surprised us last night with a tree. It is freakin' huge. We couldn't stop laughing at how ridiculously enormous it is! And then as the branches fell it just kept getting bigger and bigger! Wade said the way he picked it out was to grab the tallest one there, and they are all bundled so you can't tell the width. Well, it's six feet across at the bottom and at least eight feet tall. Way too freakin' big for our living room! Decorated pictures to come.
