On Friday I finished another semester of teaching, so Saturday marked the first day of 5 weeks off! We enjoyed a slow morning with a left-over-pizza picnic in the park, and the we bought our Christmas tree. E, Cora, and I all got a good laugh when he pulled the car under the carport and we heard 'scrrrrape bump bump bump' and realized we had forgotten about the tree strapped to the roof of the car. (Earl has to duck to go under the carport, so it's pretty low.) Then we had to scrrrape back out so we could unload the tree! It felt like a Griswold moment.
