She’s A Beaut,Clark!


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!”
