5:20 pm. :: pull into garage-- coax the professor to come into the car for a Christmas tree adventure.
5:30 pm. :: head to McDounalds to get Drew two double cheeseburgers and two "large" waters. Cost $3.30. The Professor is upset. A McDouble costs only $1 (same as a double cheeseburger with only ONE piece of cheese), and a regular water is FREE. (who knew?!) I was NOT about to change my order at the second window. Donate $1.30 for McDonalds drive through peace. (Drew shares bites with all the other kids... they are promised frozen ravioli for dinner!)
5:40 pm. :: Found the tree farm on Philomath main street that i had never seen before, but heard about. (Only had to turn around twice.)
PITCH BLACK outside.
5:41 pm. :: sat in the car while the professor tried to encourage us to go home and get a tree another day... so glad the owner came out and laughed when I said we were here to cut down a tree...
5:50 pm. :: waited while the owner found us some flash lights.
(tell me i can just throw them away WITHOUT roasting them and making homemade pumpkin pie...)
tis the season!!
