Christmas tree hunting

 For the third year in a row, we headed to Brown's Tree Farm in Warrensburg to cut down our Christmas tree. No Charlie Brown trees, unless you selected one of the new saplings.

It was a spur-of-the-moment trip, so we had to get out to the full-grown trees rather quickly. That's not Alice with us, but our new friend Tasha, a chocolate lab. She preferred following the boys and playing with snowballs instead of leaving with her owners.

It was a beautiful sunset. Dh and I didn't feel like tramping off the snow-blown path, so we sent the boys out further into the field to select and cut down the tree themselves. They did a great job!

Dh couldn't resist also buying one of the wreaths with the big red bows.

Going there to cut our tree is so inexpensive, we got both the tree and wreath for the same cost of buying a cut one here in town.

"Of course we can fit the tree in the van, as long as 3 of the boys sit in the back and we remove one of the middle seats." It was fun to watch them have to climb out the trunk when we stopped for dinner on the way home.
