the christmas tree outing was like no other this year - first on our way there the kids said, "we can't get our tree there is not any snow!!" they were right it was sunny and 45 - we left in coats, hats, gloves and half way through the hunting they had shedded it all and said they were sweating. we went really nuts and got a grand fir . . . WE ARE NOT A GRAND FIR FAMILY! we have never gotten a grand fir, but the selection was low on nobles, and the grand fir looked like it might work. well. . . it smells delicious - much better than a noble - it fills the house with that sweet pine christmas smell, but it is HUGE and fills up the entire room and is really bushy! here are some pics from our christmas tree hunting. . .
