Traditionally we cut down our Christmas tree at Phil's dad's house from his back property. This year, we decided that a rather large blue spruce was a little too close to our garage. So in the spirit of recycling, Phil and his dad cut down that big blue spruce from our side yard & we used the top as our Christmas tree.
Here is the tree before.
Phil's dad cutting while Phil made sure it didn't fall on the house... very important.
After some small snafus, it finally came down. Of course Tula had to supervise.
Here is the finished product. A little Charlie Brownish, but we love it all the same, because it's ours!
