As most of our friends and family know, we ALWAYS have a real Christmas Tree in our house during the holidays. George has promised the girls if they come home for Christmas, we will always have a real Christmas Tree. We have called on friends for many years to get this monster in the house…high school friends, neighbors, and good friends, Bill Irwin, are on call for the delivery. When the girls were still home, they would help select the tree. The bigger the better! Watching George get in the holiday spirit??? while he struggled with the tree, was always their favorite part of the process.
Because of allergies and sniffles, the day of going to MR. TREE and bringing home our tree is over.
This year George and I traveled to COSTCO to purchase, reluctantly a beautiful artificial tree with LIGHTS already on the tree…they even turn to color for Eli and Evie. Knowing we needed to get a large tree, we purchased the tallest tree they had. The box didn’t even fit in our car as a complete stranger overheard us talking about living in Westerville and offered to follow us home in his truck. What relief we felt! The tree is pretty, lights already on, it will pay for itself in 2 years as Mr. Tree is getting very pricey, carpet will not have water stains, no watering the tree, the family should be well and the list went on.
Time passes and we get a call from COSTCO.
Thank you to COSTCO for calling…
We can only imagine the family’s reaction if we were missing half of our new tree on December 23? WAY TOO MUCH Change for the Yanok family.
