We went out and cut down our very first real Christmas Tree last weekend. It was lots of fun. There was no snow, but I think that actually made it easier. We found our perfect tree, and after Mike cut it down he had to take a couple of feet off before we took it home. Then we took it inside, and it was still huge! Too big to fit where we wanted it, because of course the ceiling is lower there. So Mike had to take a lot more off. So here is Mike before the tree fit in the house.
Here are some pictures of us with the tree.
We took Roscoe, so here he is in the back of the truck with the tree.
Here's Mike carrying the tree back to the truck. What a buff guy!

This is the branch where Carson put all of the ornaments. At one point he had so many on this branch that it just about touched the ground.

Here is a random picture of Natalie, trying to carry a ball in her mouth.
