Oh Christmas Tree....

It is our family tradition to go cut down our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving....and get all the holiday decorations out and fill the home with Christmas spirit. This year things had to be delayed a bit with Zach's seizure and Jen's pneumonia. So TODAY - one week and one day later than normal we headed out to find our perfect Christmas tree.

The last few years we have driven up past Ogden to get our tree....we didn't want to drive that far this year. We actually found a place in Alpine (less than 10 miles from our house!) that had an assortment of Colorado Blue Spruce for cutting. Of course it was FREEZING cold outside and had been snowing a bit all morning....but we made the trek anyways and just found our tree FAST!

Glen holding our "tree stick" - the owners requirement was the tree had to be at least 8 feet tall.
Ta-DAH! This is a nice 10 foot SPRUCE!

Check out the SNOWFLAKES falling!
The tree is at home - but now how do we get it through the door?
Zach LOVED helping decorate
