The Christmas Tree

A perfect day in the snow to choose the perfect Christmas tree.
There's 65 acres here. How do I decide?

I think this might be the one.

Helping Grumps and Mr. Fowler take the tree to the car.

I'm exhausted. What a wonderful day baking cookies and cutting the perfect Christmas tree. We'll decorate it tomorrow after all the snow melts off the branches.

This post takes me back to when I was a boy and we would get live Christmas trees. We would decorate it with old, faded glass ornaments and multi-colored lights that my dad has spliced and taped over year after year. It was the time of year I truly looked forward to, that special time of knowing that Santa was on his way and my family would all be together. Thanks, Lynn, for the walk down memory lane!
