Pretty Tree!

Well, we finally got our tree. George and I went Saturday afternoon. I wasn't feeling so swell but we were just going up the road and it was going to be a quick trip....ha
We went to the same place we went last year, all noble firs and inexpensive. But when we got there and looked around, nothing looked that great. So we decided to try another place. We followed some cute signs that said "north pole christmas trees" So we drove way up in the middle of hillbilly no where to find some guy's yard that he planted some trees in. There were some big douglas firs, and one or two sad looking nobles...so we left. We were almost resigned to going to a tree lot, but then I thought of one more place not too far away.
We got there and the trees were perfect! There were lots and lots of beautiful, well trimmed nobles and we (I) had a hard time picking. We finally settled on one and George cut it down. He got nice and muddie too! But I was worth it, the tree is beautiful!
We finished most of our Christmas shopping today, now it's time to wrap all the goodies. Well, I might save that for tomorrow....
We would love to see updates from everyone! please?

It looks great! How fun for you. There aren't many places here to cut your own tree, kind of sad, but I guess we wouldn't do it anyway so I can't complain too much. We have our fake tree, it is cheaper and reusable LOL.

I bet that smells great! I love fresh trees. I guess we will have one more year with the fake tree and then we will be able to have fresh trees again!!
