The Hunt is On


Sunday was a beautiful day for finding just the right tree. The sky was clear, the sun was shining, and only a little snow on the ground. All of that makes hunting a tree much easier!!! We set out after lunch to a new location not far from our house. We walked up the path the kids spreading out over the hill trying to find just the right tree.  Up the hill and over and starting back down and still no perfect tree? April and I discover snow berries on the path and start collecting them for an arrangement or a wreath. Down the hill and to the right on a different path I hear them yell, "We got it, come look!" Sure enough the tree looks pretty good, maybe good enough to beat Vince and Lorissa's tree!?!  Not that we were in competition mind you, but I did hear that Vince said he would pay the extra 20 bucks to have a tree to be proud of, not a Charlie Brown Tree. I think he was making fun of our last two years of trees!! Well, check this out Vince!!
P.S. Our tree was only touched by the hand of God not humanly sculpted like others that I know!!

I am glad to see that you too enjoy hunting in the forest for a tree. I gave 'Rissa a bad time about nothing being better than cutting down your tree at a farm. Yours looks great! Wish that we could be in the same forest looking for trees.

wow! it looks like you almost had to cut a hole in the roof so that the tree would fit. I'll have to admit, the tree doesn't look like charlie brown picked it out, but i will say that I think God has planted some prettier looking trees :)
what's Riss doing in the Christmas 1988 picture? Was she pretending to be Michael Jackson?
