Christmas Tree Hunt 2009

O Boy decided he needed to wear the complete lion costume the entire time. You'll notice his tail sticking up and out of his snowpants.

Since I always have trouble figuring out how blogger is going to upload our photos, some of these sequences are backwards!

Yet again Dad wrestles a painfully pokey tree onto the top of the car.

Only about 11 feet tall this year!
Watching the chainsaw at work. This year, for the first time, Phil found our tree just a short distance away from where we parked the cars and within minutes of our arriving. Amazing.

Taking O Boy's tree back to the car.

My very own tree!
Holding on while dad cuts it down (he chose a painfully pokey spruce!)
This is the ONE.
Off to find my own tree with Dad.

My very own tree!

Here's my little tree!
Standing on a frozen old moose (or elk?) hide we found by the cars.
A big animal skull we found by the cars.
O Boy gets some costume adjustment (his lion mask was tipped) help from Mr. Ray.
Wow! What is this huge thing??

Mimi approves of each tree, especially the "charlie brown" tree of T. Eleven feet is huge by lower 48 standards. Babbalou is coming over tonight so we will show her the picts.
