In another attempt to make the show interesting while depicting the Browns bonding as a family, the Browns decide to go to the mountains and cut down a Christmas tree! I could only think of one thing: CHRISTMAS VACATION! Classic holiday film, watch it this year if you haven’t already! Downtown Kody Brown is now also Kody Griswold
The family looks and looks and finally finds a tree that they all like. Kody starts the tree-hacking-down process, then Hunter and Logan take turns. Um, You gave Hunter an ax? Is that a good idea?
Hunter finally pushes the tree over and ruins Christmas when the tree falls the wrong way and cracks all the branches! Know what this means? It means it’s time for another round of GOOFUS AND GALLANT!!

Goofus strangles the tree like it’s a hooker that owes him money
Meri explains that the kids were eyeing the tree as it dropped branch after branch as they carried it to the car, and it was clear that they hated it. “Why this tree? Why couldn’t we go to a tree lot like normal people? This tree isn’t gonig to look right! We hate this tree!” You know, you could subsititue “tree” with “Robyn” and you have all of the last two seasons!
CUE THE DRAMATIC MUSIC! It’s a fight! Apparently one of Janelle’s sons, Gabriel, said something to Garrison, Garrison picked a fight, then Gabriel punched Garrison in the nose.I feel like I have never seen these boys before. Janelle, are you sure those are your sons? Why is it every time I watch this show, I feel like there are at least three kids I’ve never seen before?
Nice shirt. Also, WHO ARE YOU?
Janelle tries to handle the situation but she’s way too nice. The ladies share that they often have to dole out the discipline without Kody, and that they won’t want to make Kody the bad guy with the old “wait until your father gets home! line. Sidenote – Did you ever watch this show? I used to love it.
When it comes to discipline, Janelle is the softie while Kody lays down the law. They’re both nicer than me. I would have made them eat the tree. FYI, I don’t have kids so you can take “report LadyBaldy to CPS” off of your to-do list.
Kody rants about discipline and I’m bored. Luckily there’s a commercial break! After the break, Kody takes the little girls shopping to get things for their mothers and their secret santa sibling. Awww – father daughter time! Also, that is a handy solution to dealing with 17 kids and presents.
Kody is cracking up over how hard it is to find something his wives would like! You know when it’s not hard? When you know them well. Or, by ASKING. Just saying.
“Shopping for my wives is challenging!” So is being married to you, so you’re even.
The ladies are super excited to give their gift to Kody, but we don’t get to see it yet. I’m betting it’s not a haircut or dignity, so let’s just let go of our hope that Kody gets either of them this year.
Christine insists that cost is not important, it’s about getting people what they really want and need. I hope she doesn’t hear what Kody had to say about gift giving.
Christmas Eve!! The kids are all excited to go to the big house. The rental, not prison. Hyper ass Ysabel tells us how excited she is about the house and she sounds like the Riddler. Check the glue supply and the sugar, I’m pretty sure she’s gotten into both .
More drama! Janelle and Christine have a billion helpers each so they’re good to go right away. Meri doesn’t have a gaggle of
pack mules children so loading up her car is hard work, especially since Mariah has gone AWOL.
