Well, Jeff took some convincing. I even composed another song to sing on his voicemail to tempt him:
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
everywhere except Amy's house...
she needs to get a tree
with help from Brother Jeffery
today before the snowstorm hits the state and it's too late to decorate...
la la la la..."
And it worked.
We braved the weather, got the tree and put it up in record time.
(The picture's blurry...Jeff moves fast.)
The tree is kind of shaped like a rocket right now, but I hope it will relax in the warm living room. The scent is heavenly. It feels more festive in here (and makes the practicing atmosphere even better) as it is right now. But I really I hope I decorate the tree this year, rather than letting it be naked except for its lights all season like I did last year.
