Uh, Where's The Rest Of My Tree?

It was the Black Friday deal worth getting up for, or so I thought. A very plush looking Christmas tree bragging 800+ tips and 7 1/2 feet tall on sale for $30. (Regular Price: $100) So I hauled my sorry butt out of bed and to the store to score my bargain tree. The picture on the box showed a nice full tree that would be just perfect. This is what was in the box:

Yes, indeed, this was IT! Nice and plush, huh?! Jeff pointed out that it was only 7 1/2 feet tall because it started 2 feet off the ground. James could sit under it.

After a LOT of fluffing, this is what we got. It is obviously not even close to the tree on the box, but it is better than our previous tree, so we decided to keep it around. Jeff gave it a trim to reduce the ill-proportioned trunk. Ahh, nothing says Christmas like cutting down your own fake tree. I feel so nostalgic.

This just proves that with enough ornaments, you can cover up anything! So there it is in all its glory...the Black Friday special!

With enough ornaments, you can cover anything???? So that's why there were ornaments in your kitchen last time I was there!
Ok I went too far there...sorry bout that...but that WAS a funny comment. You gotta admit that.

Don't worry. For your next six kids, I will make sure not to bring any good meals. I'll let you eat everyone else's mystery casseroles and jello salads.
