O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

We decided that we wanted to pick and cut our own Christmas tree this year so this Saturday Sara and I drove out to a farm in Great Falls. I'm not sure if we were too late in the season or if this particular farm just wasn't very good, but they didn't have a single tree that was acceptable to us. Fortunately, there were several nurseries selling Christmas trees right before the farm. We got ourselves a nice 6'6'' Fraser Fir. After driving it home we spent the rest of the afternoon putting it up and decorating the rest of the house. Christmas!
