Since 1986 when we moved into our log house ...
we have gone out and found the perfect Xmas tree for the living room.
We would venture out all bundled up ... trudge thru the snow ...
find the tree ... cut it down
and then stop for a well deserved break of hot chocolate and cookies
to gather our strength to drag it back to the house.
Today, as the boys are on their own with their families,
Mike and I do this task ourselves ... notice the truck is doing the hauling now, we have enough strength to pack it out of the bush ... and that's all...!!
Getting it into the house and in the stand is enough work for us ... where are the kids when you need them ... ??
It takes us one day to find and bring the tree in and then another whole day to decorate ...
