Christmas tree hunt

Christmas tree hunt - Dec. 16, 2011

Stopped by Shawn's place to select our Christmas tree.  We had our saw, some rope and a ladder.   We exchanged our normal outdoor wear of mitts and winter coats for sunscreen and bug repellent this year.  We had only a few trees to choose from and found one to our liking in no time.

Timber Mate!
Tied it to the roof of the Toyota Kluger and we were off.  No sledding or sitting around the campfire trying to warm up with hot chocolate afterwards, but rather turning on the air con to cool down.

It's the memories of selecting the tree together and having fun getting it ready for Christmas that means the most.  We love all of our Charlie Brown trees!

Shopping centers are decorated for the season and houses are decorated with lights.  We went for a drive one night to see all the lights to help get in the spirit, as the lack of snow was affecting our Christmas mood.
