"O Christmas Tree"

We went on our annual tree hunt yesterday. It was a gorgeous sunny day, still pretty chilly though. Some have asked us why it takes all day to get a tree and we aren't really sure. Here is a rundown of activities.

1. Meet friends at grocery store (Usually the Bonnins are late)
2. Load up into friend's rig
3. Drive to approved tree cutting area
4. Drive down many dirt roads and turn around
5. Finally find the perfect tree area
6. Unload kids and redress them
7. Start a fire
8. Watch kids play in fire
9. Hike around for a tree
10. Eat lunch
11. Play in any snow around
12. Drink hot chocolate
13. Get serious about looking for tree
14. cut tree
15. Carry tree back to car
16. realize tree is huge and trim tree more
17. Tie trees to car
18. Ride friend's quads(I didn't participate)
19. Eat more, play more, sit by fire
20. Put out fire
21. Undress kids
22. Load up kids and stuff
23. Drive back to town
24. Eat pizza
25. Unload tree
That is pretty much our day and we love it! It usually takes us a day or 2 to get the tree up and decorated...who wants to rush these things.
