Early season preparations are underway here -- with a twist for us,and a very fun novelty!
Come along and see!
First, just a little "hitch in the gitalong" of a Christmas expedition...
A little bit of a snowy ditch, miles from civilization and out of cell phone range, didn't daunt these Colorado boys, of course. They made it out of the snow, carried on with the tree hunt, and, for an eight dollar license, a little gas money, and a day in the cool fresh air, look what they came home with....
The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever!
|Approximately 11.5 feet tall!|
|And here they are -- Jon, Dan, and Dominic -- three happy hunters, showing off their trophy.|
The biggest tree we've ever had! In fact, this is one of very few Christmas trees we've actually had in the life of our family. Our little farm house on the eastern prairies was just too small to fit one, so we always surrounded our Nativity with a slew of rustic faux trees. And we were content with that. But, in this house, with its wonderful Great Room, there's no reason not to have an elaborate Nativity and a big ole' Christmas tree, too! And, boy oh boy, did the guys bring us home a tree!
Now to decorate it! The girls and I have our work cut out for us.We have basically no ornaments! But, we do have some ideas... Hopefully, I'll be able to get some pictures on here as we work it all out. Stay tuned!
Happy First Week of Advent, Friends!
