The days after Thanksgiving is now Christmas Tree day as long as I am in charge…well, in a decision making position.
Whitney, Gus and I visited a local Tree farm and found out just how hard it is to pick out the perfect tree. I had a flashback with the Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation” movie when they were in the snow driven woods with a chainsaw.
We found a 9 footer. It was well rounded and had a full set of limbs and everyone agreed it would look nice.
Gus did have an accident. He was pacing through the trees trying to get around and hit a small hill. His foot got caught and he dove, head first, into a small patch of rocks, dirt and grass. A little bit of blood on his upper lip, mouth full of grass, a moment of surprise and brushing off his clothes and he was off again.
All together, we had a wonderful experience. And we can’t wait to do it next year…already. 🙂 Let’s just call it a new tradition.
