A Pine Forest

Tree-11

My little sidekick Krew went to the Christmas Tree farm with Gramaw yesterday.

 

When I told him we were going to get Gramaw's Christmas tree, he said, "Don't worry, Gramaw.  I will help you put it together."

 

Tree-1

I wonder what was going through his sharp and busy little mind when we drove through the country, not to a store...

 

Tree-4

...but to, as he called it, "a pine forest."

Wouldn't you know it that the type of tree I had my heart set on, a Canaan fir, was only to be found in the farthest corner of the farm. We had to walk about a mile up and down hills and through muddy places to get there.  A precut Scotch pine would've been so much simpler...but have I ever been accused of taking the "simpler" option?!

 

Tree-3

As soon as he spotted this tractor, we couldn't move on to actually look at Christmas trees until we looked at the tractor. The boy is tractor-crazy!

 

Tree-5

He picked out this cute little tree...

 

Tree-6

...but Gramaw opted for one that was a little taller.

 

Tree-7

Krew was mesmerized watching "the guy" fire up his chainsaw and fell the little fir,...

 

Tree-8

...and was a little worried when he watched him drive away with our tree.

I thought it'd been nice had "the guy"offered a tired Gramaw and her 2 1/2-year-old grandson to hitch a ride back up the muddy hills, but no such offer...

 

Tree-9

So we trudged back up the way we came.  Krew found another tractor to climb on near the office.

 

Tree-10

Such a cutie!

 

Tree-12

As fascinated as he was by the giant snowman, he was a little leery of it up close...

 

Tree-13

...and reluctantly stood for a photo.  Keeping a wary eye on the strange creature swaying in the wind...

 

Tree-15

A fun little outing with my sweet little sidekick to...

...a pine forest.
