Every year there’s one Christmas movie that I watch more than the others, but it seems to change every year.
A couple of years ago, it was A Christmas Story.
Last year it was Elf.
This year it’s National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Or as the kids like to call it, “That crazy movie where the guy uses a chainsaw.”
Seriously, what they remember about it is that Clark uses a chainsaw to cut the roots off the tree. Ha!
One of my favorite memories as a kid was going to the Christmas tree farm with my parents to cut down our tree. Once I was older, I realized what a simple memory that was. But it’s true. It was always something I looked forward to, and I’m pretty sure we all went together to do it every year until I graduated from high school.
This year, we went to a local Christmas tree farm with Rachel and co.
And it was so…warm. Like I was dressed like it was cool, because I guess in my mind it was supposed to be, and I didn’t bother to actually…check facts.
It was close to 70 degrees or something!
But besides the weather not even giving us the feeling of the holiday, it was a really fun day with the kids running around with each other, playing games, and picking out our trees.
And as Cousin Eddie would say, “She’s a beaut, Clark!”
