Oh Christmas Tree

It's becoming family tradition to go Christmas tree hunting in the outback of the Colorado's wilderness. Okay, not exactly "outback", but close enough. This year it took us 6 hours, 6 HOURS!!!!!! to cut down a very unattractive au natural tree.
Baby was not convinced that this is, in fact, a good family tradition.

It is an unattractive tree.

It was cold.

We did blow an entire day in the hunting.


We have our obligatory photo with Smokey the Bear and the kids seem to forget all the unpleasant parts of the experience and beg to go cut a tree year after year.

Hey, guess what! I got a new toy...but I wonder whe n I will get my toy from Christmas...Oh, I know when it's Christmas. I wonder what

Oh the tree is cute! Not even close to a Charlie Brown tree.

I'm not sure Song was looking at the same pictures as the rest of us :). Such a fun tradition though, maybe we will join you next year.

Hum, I'm now realizing that I have a tainted view of cute trees as we cut our tree down from the forest ourselves, too. Maybe ours is as ugly as yours... At least we didn't pay anything for the tree.
