We went and got the tree last week Saturday (yep, just getting around to posting it now).
Erin's job is to make sure the tree doesn't move when its tied to the roof. We get a real tree and its an adventure to go pick it out.
Last year, Erin sat sideways and watched the tree for the whole ride home (like 15 min). This year, she tried. She was battling a sinus infection and lost. Not more than 5 min into the ride home, she was out cold and still sitting sideways.
