Went to cut the tree!

It has been at least twelve years since we have had a real Christmas tree.  So this year we decided to have a real tree and take our grandsons along to cut it.   So this morning we all ventured out in the foggy, misty weather to search for the perfect tree.

They gave us a wagon ride out to the trees, and came back about 30 minutes later to get us.  It was fun trying to decide on which tree. 

Way to big for our house, keep looking!

Found it!
(smaller one behind the big one).

Helping grandpa cut the tree.

Then came the fun part, for grandpa, dragging it out to the path.

Now we just had to wait for the tractor to come back and get us.  It was fun our daughter came with us also.  Our grandsons enjoyed having Aunt Tammy along.

The tree is in the house with the lights on.  This tree may not be perfect, ( trunk not straight, a few gaps in the branches) all trees are beautiful after they are decorated!  Going to watch a Christmas special and decorate the tree tonight, with the help of the boys.  It has become a tradition for them to help with the tree, forbid we would think of doing it with out them. (wink)  Perfect night for it, the snow is falling!

I am finally getting a picture posted of us with Jonathan after his baptism.  What a blessing seeing him follow the Lord.  There is no greater joy than to see our grandsons wanting to live for the Lord.  I pray that they will stay strong in their faith as they continue to grow.

Christmas lights are all on, candles lit, popcorn made, off to decorate the tree!

Have a wonderful evening.

What a fun outing. We did that a few years ago and it was fun. I like the trees that are not perfect.

Have a wonderful evening with your family.
