Tree's up

I think 22 degrees might be the coldest temp for cutting down our Christmas tree that we've ever experienced. The first two Christmas Tree Hunts were in WI, and those were pretty cold. I didn't, actually, start thinking about temps until we moved to OH and it was somewhere near 70 one year. That was amazing. So, 22 is probably a record for our OH experiences.

This year's ornament is from the Outer Banks.
Part of the process.

The final outcome in the dark.

It's been years and years since we *cut* a tree. (Shhh - we have an artificial one now.) Don't you still love the lights twinkling in the dark just as much as when we were kids sneaking into the living room to stare at our childhood tree?

Love it! I was thinking about our childhood Christmases and how mom & dad made them special and fun. I think I anticipate Christmas now because of that.

If I could get our lights to sparkle like ours did when we were little I'd be thrilled!

It's always such a neat day when the tree goes up. Some day we'll go a treeing...for now, the insta-plug-in tree is good. I hope your tendons start feeling better. That's not a good kind of pain.
