panic spirit of the Christmas season has finally descended upon me, this weekend was filled with with decorating, shopping, card making and holiday baking.
With all of that squeezed into just two days, the last batch of shortbread was coming out of the oven near the midnight mark last night. Needless to say at that hour after a busy weekend, daughter and I began to get a tad goofy; without alcohol, I confess.
When she asked if we had any tree-shaped cookie cutters, I surprised her with not only a tiny pine we must have picked up some-the-heck-where-but-I-can't-remember place, I also found a matching tiny Gingerbread man. Seeing the tree reminded me of my bloggy friend Jeff's post about his Christmas tree "mishap" this year so I related the story to daughter since they have met a couple of times.
Then the silliness kicked in when her trees were starting to come out, let's say, a bit wonky.
Things just took off from there.
Now Jeff will TRY to convince you that his prized Christmas tree simply fell off his trailer on its way home. But we know better. Here, in all it's butter-and-sugary glory, is the TRUE story of what happened to Jeff's Christmas Tree:
See Jeff. See Jeff buy a Christmas tree. See Jeff smile as he is happy with his beautiful tree.
See Jeff drive down the highway with his beautiful Christmas tree in tow. See Jeff discover his un-tied down beautiful Christmas tree has suddenly disappeared from his trailer.
See Jeff search for his poor, lost beautiful Christmas tree. See Jeff wander into the Forest of Minnesota, unaware of the deadly Forest Ninjas who dwell there.
See Jeff finally come upon the dismembered formerly-beautiful Christmas tree. See Jeff become sad.
See the Forest Ninja celebrate his latest victory.
So now you know the real story.
Yup. Daughter sure put those new red and green glitter gel icing tubes to good use this year. Let's just say I am thrilled we didn't discover these things when she was three.
