The Nominees

On Sunday, with temps just north of 60 degrees, we headed to a local farm to select our Christmas tree.  There were many candidates.
Several trees received a cursory review of their application for the job.
This tree earned an interview.
As did this one.
I was determined to avoid the 2010 error: selecting a tree that was larger than our house.  So this otherwise lovely tree was rejected.
The winner was finally selected and then cut down by the handy T, who wielded a saw without cutting off her hand, a task I was unlikely to manage. 
Then we all took a ride on the back of the tractor.

The tree was trussed up and tied to the car for a trip to Sassafras House. 
We decorated it on Sunday night.  Tiger and Lucy continue to be most thrilled with the new inmate.  Pictures of the final product will be posted in the next few days.  Spoiler alert: it's lovely!

Nothing like picking out a Christmas tree while wearing shorts. :-)
