It's Cristmas Time- Part 1

Last Saturday, we went out with Don, Nancy, Brook, Geoff and Gavin to cut down our Christmas trees. It has been several years since we put up our own tree and we were pretty excited. But, because we don't have a lot of space at our house, we were determined to get a "taller/narrower" tree than we are used to.

So, Saturday morning, we got up, decided whether or not we were really going to go (it was cold and raining off and on), and headed out to Don and Nancy's house for breakfast. We ended up at a tree farm called "Star Pine Farms" where everyone else had gotten the tree last year. We loaded up on the tractor-pulled trailer and were taken out into the middle of the farm, dropped off, and told to cut from either side of the road. We all decided to head off to the left.

Andrew and I looked at several different possibilities, but finally decided on one at, you guessed it, the last row (which happened to be down a hill, probably 1/4 to 1/3 of a mile from where the tractor dropped off/picked up). So, we cut it down and started dragging. Along the way, we came across Don and Nancy cutting down their tree- the biggest yet! So, I took our tree and Andrew helped Don carry his. Brook ended up helping me drag ours the last little bit.

As the tractor came back to drop off another load of customers and pick us up, we heard someone ask where the best trees were. The driver stated, "Well, it depends on what you want. IF you want trees that are big and round, you go to the left. IF you are looking for the tall, skinny trees, those are by the old church, over here to the right." That is right! We had been so focused on finding a tall skinny tree and were on the wrong side of the road! As we looked to the right side of the road, we saw several tall, skinny trees just like we had been looking for, just 2 or 3 rows off of the road.

All in all, we had a good time. But next time, we will definitely ask where to find the best trees!
