Step Aside, Clark Griswold.
Welcome to our Christmas Tree Adventure.
One Teacher. One Jeweler. On the hunt.
A rare Santa sighting at the tree farm.
"Atta way, to the trees..."
WE DID IT! We looked high and low and were quite successful,
in finding the BIGGEST tree at the tree farm.
A mere 11 foot tall.
A mere 11 foot tall.
Some trimmage had to happen before she was allowed in the house.
Joe must have trimmed at least 2 foot off the trunk.
What can I say.
We were a bit over-zealous.
Lovely tree Lorelei!ReplyDelete
Here in Oz radiata pine is about the only thing that survives the climate.
Usuall put up a few days before Christmas and they have shed all the needles all over the house by New Year. Probably accounts for why artificial trees are the go here. No where good as the real deal
Cool photos - how did you do that?ReplyDelete
What fun to pick your own tree from a farm! Beautifully decorated and I think I smell the pine...Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
What a lovely tree! I'm allergic, so we haven't had a real tree for ages! Thanks for sharing the adventure.ReplyDelete
Ohhhh if that wasnt the sweetest! It put a smile on my face! The pics its like a storytale! xxReplyDelete
Very cute and funny post. And the tree is beautiful. I love that movie too.ReplyDelete
It's a beauty - great photos.ReplyDelete
Dang it! You won...I didn't get my tree yesterday!ReplyDelete
Wonderful pictures!!! I love the way the snow is gently laying on the tree branches (even the non-evergreens)...ReplyDelete
I love the way the last picture is just so warm and cozy after taking the visual journey with you to the outdoors to find that perfect tree!
As a child, I always hoped to find little chipmunks or other furry critters in the live trees we had for Christmas... never happened though (as an adult, I say - thankfully never happened).
Hey L...give us a 101 on how you did the photos!!ReplyDelete
Great photo essay. Looks sort of Norman Rockwellish. Tell us how you did the photos and how are the branches still snowlike in the last photo? We're in Florida so it truly was a treat.ReplyDelete
That's a huge tree! Did you check for any squirrels living inside?ReplyDelete
What great pics and a magical tree. We don't get much snow here in Richmond so I loved seeing it.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful tree! And the snow! Oh, I want a white Christmas so badly!ReplyDelete

This looks like the North Pole! So beautiful!ReplyDelete
