So today my family acquired our Christmas tree. To do this a few things are necessary, firstly the entire family must attend. Secondly they must be bundled to the max to survive the extended exposure to the winter weather. And then we must be left in the Christmas tree field until we are all cold and disgruntled enough that we finally decide on a tree. This can take several hours depending. This year was a bit unusual due to the warmer weather, the addition of babies and significant others. The only sad part was the lack of snow. Usually with about a foot and a half of the fluffy stuff we can have snow ball fights, tackle people into the snow and make some lounging snow angels. This was not possible this year, none the less it was fun and we ended up with a not bad tree. It's a bit dense, and a little skinny but still quality, especially now that it's decorated.
