Cutting Down Our Tree

After we went to see Santa we went to cut our Christmas tree down (N2 did change first).  It's our tradition to go to the same Christmas tree farm, take along Grandma and Grandpa Weidner and search for the perfect tree.  Well I search for the perfect tree while everyone else follows along.  They had HUGE trees this year.  They were too big for me to see the shape so it took us a while to find the tree.  The tree we chose was quite large and we left a couple feet at the bottom.  I picked out a different kind of tree this year-no White Pine for us this year!  It was a nice day out-not too cold so no one minded being out for a while this year.

 My kids like to balance on stumps and pretend to be the angel on the top of the tree.  I think Grandma Weidner started this a couple years ago.  This year there were tons of branches laying around and N2 picked them up and pretended to have umbrellas and be peacocks.  These pictures of them are them being peacocks.

 Here they are with our tree.  See how huge it is???  Then came the daunting task of trying to cut it down.  It had quite a large trunk!

Now the tree is down and we have to carry it to the tractor.  Noah was such a big help!
