Very Rare Indeed!

I almost hate to put these pictures on here because I know Lucas is feeling like he is missing things. Every year we cut our Christmas tree at a local Chrstmas tree farm. There are tons of tree farms within 45 minutes of our house. As one can imagine, it is easy to grow trees here. At our old house, we had doug firs springing up all over the yard. A couple of them are gigantic now; one year we cut our own tree right from our yard because it was growing in the rock wall.

This year we took the ferry over to Whidbey. We live 7 minutes from the ferry and the tree farm was only 2 miles from the ferry dock on the island. When you take the ferry fee into account, it makes for kind of an expensive tree but it is our favorite place to go. And there was snow! I do believe only about once or twice in the last 20 years have we had snow when we cut our tree--very rare indeed! Sorry Lucas.
