Oh Christmas Tree........

We went and got our Christmas tree over the weekend...every year we hike out and cut it down and every year we say, next year we will get a fake tree to avoid the hike in deep snow, freezing cold with 2 girls whining they want to be done and go home.......but we always end up doing it again!?!? This year at a local farm they did a fundraiser for one of the area preschools -any tree, any size $20 and 100% of the profits went to the preschool! We got a really gorgeous 9' blue spruce! Of course we had to cut off about 2' to fit it in the house but that's better than normal considering I almost always pick a 12-14 foot tree but to my defense its really hard to judge the size against these 20'+ tall trees in the middle of a field of trees! Dave LOVES it, I mean absolutely loves it too because I will not let him bring his chainsaw...there is nothing Christmasy about the roar of a chainsaw & smell of oil & way..bring on that old handy bow saw for our tree!!!!

Enjoy some pictures of our adventure! Oh yea, & there was some guy walking around with a chainsaw to cut it down for you....I thought Dave was gonna come unglued when I passed on his kind offer ;) I did however get him some help dragging it outta the field to the road!!!
{Can you see Savannah's little head sticking out there, she is quite the helper!!!}

Here it is all lit up & decorated!!! The flash really shows the blue hue on the branches but makes it look a little crazy too..My crappy camera does not do it justice...I have asked Santa to bring me a fancy DSLR camera this year so we will see!!!!!
