(loud, “jingle, jingle, jingle)

me: Ricardo what was that noise?

R: The dog playing with the jingle bell wreath on the door.

Me: Oh. (thinking, “what”?, but too tired to care)

6:15 am

R: Olivia the tree fell over

Me: What? Are you freakin kidding me.

We work for like 5 minutes to fix it and it wasn’t happening. I had just put a gallon of water in the tree stand, so now the carpet is completely soaked. It needed to be cleaned anyway.
7:30 am

Nathan: Mom, what happened to the tree? (its still slumped against the window. The UPS man must have been impressed.)

Me (trying to be cute): When St. Nick came down the chimney last night he came in here to look at the tree and knocked it over.


Me: I don’t know?

N: But you have to tell me

Me: He just thought it looked cool

N: Oh (?)

3:00 pm (I tried to fix the tree by myself)

Me:*#@%$ this piece of %$*# tree.

7:00 pm (we now have fishing wire guide wires attached at the window locks)

N: Mom, I can’t find my Hotwheeler (Hot Wheel) ornament that’s cool, I think St. Nick stole it.

Me: No, he didn’t.

N: I think he did, because its not here.

Me: I’m pretty sure its here somewhere.

N: But I can’t find it

Luckily I found it. I couldn’t let the boy go through his childhood thinking that St. Nick stole his favorite ornament.

    You have the funniest life… you couldn’t make this stuff up. Did “DOG” knock the tree over?! I am telling you we are going to find a nice farm for your “DOG” and my “DOG” and they can run and play with anyone but us.

    This happened to us on our first Christmas in our apt. Well, minus St. Nick stealing ornaments. :)After the tree fell for the 9th time I swore that we’d never do a real tree again…thus our fantabulous fake tree.
