Our Tree!

This is our 1st tree together. We got it at Indian Hill Tree Farm. Actually this is our second tree, as the first one that Jen picked out, we donated to her parents. Somehow the tree they originally picked, ended up VERY short when it was set up in the house. I think the stump as cut a little high and it ended up shortening the tree quite a bit. Anyway the Spruce that we picked out is very nice. Quite proportionate. Indian Hill lets you cut down the tree, then they come by in a tractor and trailer, and you bring it back on the trailer. (Beats dragging the thing all over the mountainside) Then they put it on a “shaker” and it beats the tree until all the needles that are loose fall off. Then they run it through the shoot and it gets wrapped with twine. I know most tree farms do that, but the “shaker” is definately something new for me. Here’s a picture in our freshly painted living room. Now lets see how many ornaments the cat can knock off…
