Through the Jungle and Into the Desert....

We made our annual trip to cut down our Christmas tree last weekend.  It was so cold!  Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long to get loaded up on the horse-drawn wagon.  Redmond loved the horses, he liked to look, but didn't want to get too close.

We took a short little ride on the wagon, grabbed a saw and started searching for the perfect tree.  Jason found a couple that looked good, but Redmond wasn't satisfied with any of them.  He told us we needed to walk through the jungle and into the desert.  Our tree was waiting for us in there.
Finally, after our toes and fingers were frozen, Redmond yelled "I found it!  There's our Christmas tree!"  He was so excited to have picked out our tree this year.  It may be the smallest, most bare tree we've had yet, but it's perfect nonetheless :)
Poor Jason's hands were frozen by this point.  That sure didn't make sawing down the tree any easier!
After he made some progress, I thought I'd help him out by pushing on the tree.  I let out my inner She-Ra and ended up splitting the trunk in half.  Oops!  Guess I just don't know my own strength!
Once we got home it was time to decorate.  We are keeping the ornaments at a minimum this year because we figured Ashlyn would be all over them, pulling them off of the tree.  She's actually left it alone for the most part, it's Redmond who we keep catching playing with the tree.

Who knew we could find the perfect Christmas tree in the desert!?
