Video:Fathering Autism- Christmas Tree Fails | Vlogmas 4

We had several Christmas tree fails. Come to think of it we have a lot of fails during the holidays but that seems to make for great memories. We found Christmas tree #2 at Webster’s Tree Farm, threw it on the top of the car and headed home. We already have one sentimental ornament destroyed so far. Lets hope it’s the last one. We always make such great memories and we are so happy you can join us this Christmas.
