The Christmas tree farm we used to go to seems to have closed down. We were headed to Higginsville to get a precut tree (I was pouting about that; I wanted a fresh-cut tree) when Cliff's brother who lives there called on the cell phone. I had Cliff ask him if he knew of any Christmas tree farms nearby, and he did! In fact, this was the best one we've ever found. The trees were all very nice, and they had any size a person might want.
Cliff was just happy to have heard the last of it for this season.
The tree was $35, and they didn't charge extra for shaking the dead needles off.
I thought we should have taken the pickup, but Cliff said the trunk would work just fine.
Indeed, it did.
Oh yes, and my bubble lights work great.
Decorating a Christmas tree with no children around isn't nearly as much fun, but it's still worth the effort. I had "It's A Wonderful Life" playing in the background while I trimmed the tree.
The pine scent is divine. But it makes me hungry for fruitcake.
