This year we had the satisfaction of cutting a tree from our own tree farm and carrying it up through the pasture to the house. Russ actually grows landscape trees, but they’ve grown larger and we needed to thin them a little.
We went out in the pouring rain to find a tree and Sunshine helped Russ cut it. Eby was pretty interested in the saw – nervous at first, and then a little wild.
Then they carried it up to the house and put it on the porch until evening when everyone was home to decorate it with the special ornaments they’ve received over the years.
I hope this is the beginning of a new tradition.
Question: Do you have a Christmas tree? What are your traditions?
