BOYS AND TREES


We all went "hunting" for the perfect tree last week.
This was it.
7 1/2 feet of Blue Spruce.

Sam and his cousin, Adam, took turns sawing, I mean "felling" the tree.
Since building our "little farmhouse on the prairie" 5 years ago, we have had a traditional, cut your own, real, live, Christmas tree.
And every year, by the day after Christmas, said tree has shed countless, pokey, prickly, sticky needles. And I am itching to take it down by Dec. 26.
Well, maybe we can wait till the 27th!!!
Pin It!

Nothing like the smell of a fresh tree...we don't have a real tree. Next year when my oldest is 4 we will start the tradition of going and getting one. Maybe we'll come to FarmCyn's house! ;-)
