Our Christmas Tree Excursion

Here are a few photo's of us getting our tree this year. We for some strange reason decided to wait until AFTER the storm that dropped an additiona 12-18 inches on top of the almost 2 ft of snow we already had. So...only Erik and Abbey trudged through the snow to find our tree. Aiden has become entralled with picture taking. Every time the camera comes out he has to take a few pictures. This first photo was taken by Aiden. Not bad!

Here's Erik cutting down the selected tree. Next year we are hoping to start buying a living tree and planting it on our property. We are thinking about setting this one up in the yard and putting bird food, etc on it so that it gets used all winter before we put it in the compost pile (or we may also use to make fire starters).
Here are the boys and Abbey heading out of the tree lot.
And here is Aiden helping Erik drag the tree down to the barn to have it bagged and paid for!
And last but not least here are the Dow boys being silly as always!
Then we got to go inside and enjoy cider and donuts! What a way to end the day.
