We decided to hunt a Christmas Tree today.
We found a "tree farm" in relatively close proximity to where we live in Colorado.
Now I realize that there are many tree-filled places in Colorado...
This was not one of those.
Have to say it made hunting pretty easy when the pickin's were so meager!
We finally decided to choose the least ugly one we could find - rather than the most beautiful.
Everyone was wonderfully grateful, for beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or seven beholders).
No one was even a little bit disappointed
especially me, because the Blue Spruce were 12 dollars a foot, but the rest of the trees...
Were 35 dollars apiece.
We did pick the biggest one we could find (I hope our Idaho trees don't see any pictures or they will laugh).
And we cut it really fast so we could get out of the biting cold.
Some of us did a great job looking super cute!
Some of us were fearfully handsome!
Some of us were smart enough to wait patiently in the warm van.
It's a good thing we couldn't find a bigger tree we liked...
We used ever inch of space INSIDE our van for this 9 plus foot tree!
We had a wonderful time together and are so thankful for our beautifully affordable tree :-) (since we weren't able to cut it [for free] from our own Marvel Hill in Idaho)!
