take one: a trip to larry's produce - closed! so, we went to target, but decided it wasn't very festive/not a great tradition place. and a helpful customer told us larry's had great trees (we know, dude, thanks. but they're closed and we want a tree now!)
jack at target.
this is it, mommy!
the rooster always coming through for us.
take two: pick up jack at daycare and head straight to the lot. larry's would be open until 5, it's 4, plenty of time. except we don't have any cash. or checks. back home.
take three: back to larry's with a little time to spare. tree, check. tied on roof, check. in house, check. YAY!
