Here's the tree!! Living happily in the beautiful forest among it's peers,until we came along and cut it down to have a decoration for our home just to discard it at the first of the year. I didn't really think of it that way until now and now I feel kind of bad, oops. Here's Jerrod cutting it down! What a real man, destroying nature with tools and stuff!! He had to use the ladder to put our Angel Moroni tree topper on top!
This year we got a permit to go to the forest and cut down our own tree!! Other than our near-death experience in our un-4x4 minivan, sliding down the hill towards the ravine- thanks to the Dunn family and the Jugganiakloo family for all the help!!! We had a great time!! Jerrod was having a snowball fight with Nick, all JJ wanted to do was eat the snow, and after about 5 min the rest of us were frozen!! But we ended up getting a great tree that we had such a fun time decorating together and reminiscing about the beautiful ornaments we've collected and have been given ever since Jerrod and I were little. One of our favorite parts of decorating for Christmas is the tree!!! We love to sit in our living room with only the tree lights on and enjoy the beautiful memories of Christmas!!
