The Tree Hunt

2 years makes a tradition, right? We went on our annual trip to the Santa Cruz mountains to find the perfect Christmas tree.

First DT picked this one...

Then LT measured up this one for size!
And then we saw the perfect one.

DT insisted on helping with the sawing!

Then a Christmas tree grew legs and walked out of the forest.

We took it home and got it all gussied up. Somehow every year we end up having to saw off quite a bit of tree when we get home. TT made a wreath for the front door out of the extra branches. Very crafty, that one!
The outdoor light extravaganza. We have not set it to music yet, maybe in the future!

The tree looked huge outside - no wonder you had to trim some. It looks beautiful, and I can't wait for JT and Tiny to see your outdoor display - they are going to love it! (We went boring and only have white lights.)
