Chopping Down a Tree

 We headed out Sunday morning for the annual Christmas Tree hunt. It's usually quite the ordeal as we debate the appropriate height, bushiness, smell, needle health and no whole-y spots.
 We pretty much found the tree as soon as we got out of the car...but we looked around some more just to be sure. Gus and Mimi posing in front of the chosen one.
 Poppop saws under Reese's watchful eye. It's trunk was so thick we had to go back for a saw with a fresh blade.
 Reese had to get a better look.
 Time to haul it in to get it measured and baled.

I love going to the tree farm and getting a live tree! Maybe we'll do that again eventually:-).

I still can't get over how much you and your mom look alike!!

How fun! We have a lame fake tree. Well, actually, it's a fancy pants nice-looking tree, but it's still fake! Ah, well... back when we lived in South Florida, it was the only affordable option! :)
