Christmas Tree Time

This past week, Eric and I finally found some time to go get ourselves a Christmas tree.
Myself, I'm used to trees from my grandparents backyard/farm or the Christmas tree farm. We usually get beautiful trees. Eric's parents have a fake tree. 

So, Eric being the adventurer he is decided we should go cut one down. 
According to the Forest Ministry in Prince George, you can download this permit and cut down a tree on crown land, usually along highways and power lines. So that's what we did. 
We found an area. Found a tree. And cut it down. It was pretty massively tall.

Once we got the tree into the garage, Eric cut a good two feet off and we hauled it upstairs.
Apparently that wasn't enough, so the tree had to be shortened. A task dreaded by my husband.
It's not like we don't have a vacumn and can't vacumn up everything.

then the tree was up and in place. For some reason there are no pictures of it up. I'll guess that'll have to wait. I decorated the tree a few days later... more on that :)

  1. I used to love going out to the forest to cut down our own tree but now we live in a place that has no trees. Sad. Very sad. I'm a new GFC follower from the grow your blog hop! Esther Norine Designs
