Getting the Christmas tree, 2014

This afternoon, we trekked into the hills to get a Christmas tree. We went to the same farm we did in 2010, 2011, and 2012.1

Unlike years in the past, we had no rain, no snow, no fog, and no mud. We also had no problem finding a nice tree, cutting it down2, carrying it to the car,3 lifting it up,4 tying it down,5 bringing it home,6 setting it up,7 and decorating it.8

About all that’s left is to take a pretty picture of it. Maybe tomorrow night. It’s going to be up for a while. :-)


  1. Last year, due to everything else that was going on, we got a tree from a lot. 
  2. I love a sharp saw. 
  3. With help from one of the farmer’s daughters. 
  4. With Jamison’s help. He’s getting tall — and strong. 
  5. Jamison’s help, again. 
  6. The wheels on the car go round and round… 
  7. Yup, with Jamison’s help again. I don’t know what I’m going to do without that boy. :-) 
  8. Everyone helped! Even Mousse and Meisa wanted to get in on the fun. *<:-)
