Tree cutting adventure
So yesterday Chris phoned me and said we are going to cut down our Christmas tree this year. He has wanted to do this for a long time but the kids have been too small. We also had not taken our family photo for our Christmas card so we thought we could shoot 2 birds with one stone. So Chris found out where we had to go and it turned out to be around Cochrane. At least that's what he told me. Well it turns out this tree place was about 1 1/2 hours away. It took us an hour and a half once we got there, got our permit, got the kids dressed and got on our way to cutting down the perfect Christmas tree, and then back to the car. Mean while the kids start crying while Chris and Nathan are off scouting things out. Next year we will be more well prepared like taking a sled for the kids. The tree is sure different than the ones we have bought in the past. I will post a picture after we decorate it. I have to admit that I got a little grumpy once the kids got grumpy. But now I look back and am happy that we did it.
