Fairly Flabbergasted Friday

Today is Fairly Flabbergasted Friday. On Sunday we went with our great friends to get our Christmas tree from Galehouse, it was a fun time but it was weird cutting a Christmas tree down in short sleeves. On to the pictures..........

Elise was trying really hard to cut the tree with me.
She was getting right in the middle of it all.

Our tree with out decorations. (Obviously)

After the tree was decorated I went out to get some Taco Bell, when I came back I found Delilah laying on the floor with her foot and hands up trying to hold the tree up so it wouldn't fall. Apparently she was trying to move the tree on her own and it started to fall. She said she had been like that for a few seconds. She yelled for me to help but I couldn't resist taking a picture of the whole situation.

I was in the basement with Jude doing laundry while Delilah was at her pottery class; we heard a thump and Jude asked me what it was. I told him it was probably Molly jumping of the counter or something. When we went upstairs to take Jude to bed we found the tree on the floor in the living room. As Jude was helping me clean up the mess, he said, "dad, the tree was beautiful, but now it's not." I told him that mommy will make it beautiful again. And she did.

So, tell me...Is it wrong to laugh HYSTERICALLY at your friends misfortune?

There is really nothing else to say. I have to get a tissue to whip away my tears.

Well, I've found myself almost in Delilah's position with an artificial tree I am happy to say we no longer have! Glad you arrived before she spent half a day in that position! [even if you did have to take a photo first, for our edification!;)] What caused the tree to take a tumble?

Oh how funny! (Sorry Delilah!) Hope she is finding it funny now!
