Christmas Tree Selection

A HUGE tree is selected!!!

A HUGE tree is selected!!!

With the first snow we also thought it was a perfect day to select a tree for Christmas!

We selected a gigantic fir!

Matt, Cody and Chase all took turns sawing....

then Matt sawed another 4' off..... and then another 4' off.... don't need the tree crashing over again like last year, and the year before...

we decided to bring the tree into the barn to dry off.....

Matt had a brilliant, although "redneck" method of de-flocking the tree.... with the leaf blower!

Cody and Chase were so cold so they took a soak in the hot tub!
