|Trees with snow on them looks thick and full and beautiful.|
|Carl and I ready to find the perfect tree.|
|Are we hunting rabbits? No, we are hunting for a Christmas tree!|
Thank God it is not easy to get lost in the woods when there is thick snow on the ground. You can track back where you came from or what path the kids took. There were other unexpected things along the way like a possible Sasquatch sighting.
|Is it Sasquatch? No, it is my husband sporting his new winter goatee!|
We finally found a tree. It was the best one we could find. We knew it wasn't fabulous, but the pickings were slim. There were tons of trees, but they were all very spindly. Next year we will need to find a new spot to hunt, I think.
So, we loaded up the car and drove home. Once all the beautiful fluffy snow melted and the tree was the in the tree stand, we were hit with the true realization of how homely our tree was. Every time any of us looked at it, we would chuckle and almost have to avert our eyes. Carl and I even contemplated how we might be too embarrassed to invite anyone over to our house over the holidays due to the ugliness of our tree.
|Charlie Brown would be proud!|
