christmas tree hunting

george and i went christmas tree hunting yesterday. unfortunatley it wasn't as awesome of an experience as i would have liked...

the morning started out with george getting dressed in some nice clothes, i told him he had to change as we were going to go 'hunting' for our christmas tree this year. i told him that we were going to go out to the christmas tree farm that my family went to YEARS ago (last time we went i'm sure i was in the 6th grade) it wasn't as hard to find as i thought. the name had changed from the viking christmas tree farm to the 'outback' chrismas tree farm. hmmmmm... okay, i'll go with it.... the guy said that they had 20 acres of chrismas trees to choose from, awesome! picked up a saw and a knee cushin thing and got in the car to see the ummm what?!?! acres of trees?? the place that used to have trees when i last went there.... bare, i mean not even 1 tree... okay... we'll drive for a while and see if it gets any better... no, it dosn't, just trees full of sticker bushes.... and after allmost getting stuck on a 'road' we decided to head back to tamer tree farms. needless to say i was -really- dissapointed. so much so that i didn't even go in the lodge to write santa a letter... there goes one more childhood memory down the toilet....


we did end up going down the road to find some horrible grand firs (allmost every one had brown dead needles on the east side of them) we found a little one that was kind of sparse. george said we are going to get one here or just go back to town and get one so we cut down the tree drug it to the road. we put our tag on it and made our way to the cashier, which only took cash or checks. george went to the nearest gas station to get cash and the atm was broken, but the little coffee shop outside of the gas station had one stuck in the outside of it that worked. after he got back and we paid for the tree and then decided to go shopping for a while at the outlet mall then came home.

this morning i've been busy decorating the tree but i thought i'd take a break to tell you guys all about it. i'm sure you appreciated it...
