Tree Cutting

The tree farm was a little sparse this year.


Here come the trees cutters. You can just bet they are talking sports.


The Blog Tech cuts a small one for my bedroom! Big boy, small tree!


And the conehead finds a pumpkin. She inspected it closely. You can see the rotten pumpkin on the side of the cone.




Well, it used to be a good pumpkin mama!


I finally find the tree I want and take it down the hill to be bound.


Trees on the car. I used to put up 8-10 trees when the kids were still living at home. This year I am only doing one large one and one small one since I still have so much cooking and baking to do. I think I will heavily decorate my front porch though!



Here comes the lumber jack with the big tree.


Who knew The Blog Tech was a tree hugger?


A big strong tree hugger!


All of the greens just waiting to be used.


And the poor little puppy. She broke her cone and now it is duct taped. It has dents and scratches all over it too.


Hoping the cone comes off on Monday!

That big tree is very beautiful!

I don't think we have places like that where the buyer can cut his own tree. I've never heard of such a place anyway.

Those cones always breaks :-) but duct tape fixes everything :-) I'm holding my thumbs so that the cone comes of on Monday!

Have a great day!

Your tree is beautiful. Poor Teddy, I'll be so glad when her cone is gone. Maybe I'll get motivated next week to start the Christmas stuff.

The smell must be divine with those fresh cut trees! Haven't done that in years. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. xo

When my kids were little we enjoy going to the tree farm. So much fun! I hope Teddy gets her cone off soon.

Do you know how Christmas trees are grown? Sorry I had to ask it.

Duct tape. It heals the world.

Another victory for "duct tape assist!"

Can't wait to see a new picture of Teddy when that cone comes off. She will be doing the happy dance. I also can't wait for pictures of the decorated tree. I know it will be awesome.

The tree is gorgeous. Have fun decorating. Teddy looks so sweet and very happy to be out. I could use a BLOG TECH around here. LOL take care.
