Cutting Christmas Trees

December31

Even though Harney County is in the desert, it isn’t that far away from the forest.  Every year since I can remember, we have gotten Christmas trees from the forest.  It is fun and easy to get a permit to cut your own tree.

This year, the kids and I headed out with my sister and her family to get a tree.

It was a beautiful, sunny day.  It was so nice to be in the snow!

Daphne wasn’t very prepared, and she didn’t have a good time.  From the moment that the snow spilled in over the tops of her shoes, she started to cry.  It got worse and worse until we finally made it back to the truck.  I felt so bad for her.  See the tear?

I got her up on my back and carried her like a monkey.  Look at that nice blue sky and that beautiful pine tree behind us.

Cyprus happily slept the day away in the moby wrap.  His hat kept him nice and warm.

Josh and Noah were cute in the warm sun and the snow.

My sister did the cutting and the hauling.

Eli helped his mom.

They managed to find a very small tree for Daphne to take home and enjoy.

Didn’t they find a great tree?

And Daphne was much happier when we made it back into the truck.

Cyprus even enjoyed himself after he woke up.

I was trying to take a 365 photo.  This is a reject, but the scenery is awesome.

Cyprus was sad to say goodbye to all that snow.
