O Christmas Tree

At the beginning of this month, Rachel, Larry, Dale and I went to the Elgin Christmas tree farm.

It is a really cute place. They take you on a hay ride to where the trees are a-growin’.

Oh yeah, Blossom and Cooper came along as well.
Here is Cooper enjoying the breeze.

You then walk amongst the trees until you find the perfect one.

Here it is.

Then, You borrow a saw from Larry:

(actually, the farm people give you a saw but Dale and Larry were sharing one because that’s what friends are for)

Next, you get down in the dust and saw that sucker down:

Here is my favorite part….the decorating:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tree!

In other news:
School is out! I have a few weeks off and I am going to take full advantage of them. I need to catch up on my sleep and get a few projects started. I think the first thing I will do is to give Mr. Cooper a bath. He has missed his last couple of baths due to weather and laziness. Poor guy. Actually, I think he likes smelling like a dog.

We had our work Christmas party, today, at Gross Crab Shack. Oh, I mean “Joe’s.” Ew.

The cookies have taken over my life. I have no willpower. Resistance is futile.

The end.

Your tree looks great! Yay Christmas! I have not opened my cookies yet, but only because I am shoving little Christmas candy bars down my face every chance I can get. We must have mid-day cocktails at least once over this break. After all, what is the point of working in education if you don't take full advantage of 2 weeks off?

Joe's Crap Shack is the proper appellation.
