The Perfect Tree

The perfect tree to us is not so perfect at all.  It's got to be real.  It usually grows wild in the woods behind our house.  We prefer Spruce, and usually can find one that's growing in a cluster, so it makes it beneficial to the others if we thin one. 

We set out to find this years' Christmas tree December 3rd.  (Nice and early, for us.)
With next to no snow on the ground, it felt a little strange getting a Christmas tree.
But it was a good, cold & sunny day for being in the woods.   
Johnathan & Beau collected large sticks, and Beau practiced sounding like a pirate.
I think it's our best tree ever.  I always do.
