Operation Holiday

Missions one and two of Operation Holiday have gone quite well. I am, of course, referring to the changes that have to be made related to The Holidays when you join another family.
Mission 1: Thanksgiving. We will do the every other year thing on this holiday. Last year, while dating, we attended both. This year we went to his family. Result Report: Total Success.
Mission 2: Christmas Tree Shopping. I am a Charlie Brown tree lover. I love the trees that are tall and slim (all the things I wish I were). Prince Charming is a full tree person. He likes them fluffy. I loath them that way. As we left home in search of the perfect tree, I seriously wondered if we would find a happy medium. Okay, I actually wondered how I was going to get my way. So at the lot we moved (quickly) past the fluffy and to My section. It was a little disappointing. The trees were sparse, very sparse. Too sparse, even for me. Do not despair, this story has a happy ending. We found a tree that *gasp* we both liked. Not too full, not too Charlie Brown. Perfect for us. Result Report: Total Success.
Plans are in place for the next major missions, including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve. Fingers crossed that they will be just as successful.
**UPDATE** Decorated tree last night. All silver and green. Not to toot my own horn, but TOOT! TOOT! It looks FAB!
