Christmas Trees

While we were back at mom's for Thanksgiving we decided to go get thier Christmas tree. This tree farm has a deal with dad-they get to borrow his tractor for 4 weekends and he gets a free Christmas tree. When I was younger all of us 5 kids worked there for those 4 weekends, as did at least 4 or 5 of my cousins. My littlest brother and 2 cousins still work there. This is the farm's 20th year. It was a cold rainy/snowy day but the kids had lots of fun. Dad griped just like always, and mom was too late to help pick because she was at the hospital with Grandma. Pretty much how it works most every year. My kids wanted to help put the tree up but there was not enough time before we had to head back home.
