(When I took this picture, I thought it was going to turn out really great...but it didn't.
So, I played around with it in Picasa.)
We went to a different tree farm this year to get our tree. Every couple of years we find a new place to try.
This place was really nice...but I must admit that we probably would have enjoyed it more if it weren't for the fact that it was FREEZING out there!
It never fails...every year after it's all said and done and we spend the entire day picking out a tree and decorating it, I suggest we buy a discounted artificial tree at the end of the season. When I think of all the money we have spent the last fourteen years cutting down trees, we could have bought a beautiful tree with a whole lot less work! Brady instantly said "no way...we have to cut down our tree". I guess that's what happens when you start something!
It was a good day...no tears were shed this year over the saw. We came home and decorated the tree, had hot chocolate and finished the evening watching "Elf".
