The Christmas Tree Hunt

Xmas tree hunt 2013 11We braved the ice and snow and headed up to the mountains to find our Christmas tree. Despite the appearance, it was in the mid-30s and sunny and not at all that cold. The snow was dry and fluffy, so when I slipped on an icy patch and tumbled into a drift, the flakes just brushed right off. And it was a fairly soft, if cold, landing.

After a short walk, we had found the perfect tree — a six-foot silver tip. Some chili and mulled wine next to a fireplace and we were warmed inside and out.

Now the fun part starts. Somewhere in the attic are the boxes of ornaments and miles of tangled strings of lights.

Merry, merry!
