Well, most of my neighbors have their holiday lights up on their houses. Even my lame next door neighbors managed to do something this year. I’m a little slow on the draw due to a few valid and extremely good reasons:
- I don’t like to climb up on my slippery roof to hang lights.
- I usually wait until after my son’s birthday (December 4).
- I’m lazy.
That last reason really isn’t a reason as much as a character trait. I really am lazy.
OK, not really lazy but busy. It is the Christmas delivery crunch time for my photography business so between getting all the school retake photos done and finishing up the digital retouching on my family orders; I’m busy.
Tomorrow, we are headed out to a U-Cut tree farm run by Jeff Coates (a fellow UW business student). This will be our first time out there and we are excited to go. Unlike my pumpkin patch experience (http://khellriegel.wordpress.com/2011/10/23/yes-it-is-my-fault-a-pumpkin-patch-adventure/), I’ll be sure to tell my family that in the Seattle, in the month of December, you will most likely be walking through muddy areas and your shoes will get dirty. I highly recommend wearing some good boots. I should further mention that it will be cold (currently temperature is 37 degrees) and they should wear warm coats, pants, and maybe some gloves too.
