O Christmas Tree!

This is the second part of the Deep Creek Lake Saga. On Saturday afternoon we all went out to a local christmas tree farm to cut trees for my daughter's family and her in-laws, Bob and Mimi. We drove way up to the top of the distant hill you see here, where the "big" trees were.
We tramped around the entire hill, so that daughter Chris could examine each and every tree to find the very best one.

We looked at a lot of trees, and Chris finally chose one a few feet from where we parked the car! But, she claimed, it was the best and how could she be sure unless she looked at them all?

Tom and Stephen cut it down and it was hauled back to the car.
At the foot of the hill, the tree was put through a machine that wrapped twine around it to bundle it up and it was then secured to the roof rack on the car.

Bob and Mimi then chose their tree from one of these pre-cut trees.

I'll end this post with some pictures of Katy and Jack playing in the snow back at the house.

No knitting pictures for this post, but I have actually finished a couple of small things. I just have to take some photos of them.

That looks like a wonderful memory-making day! Beautiful family, too.
