Over the river, and through the woods to Grandmothers house, we go.
So says the song. And each year, we venture to the woods, with Grandma & Papa, to find the perfect Christmas tree.  We search high & low across the tree farm.  Noting the growth on some of the saplings.  Commenting on whether or not the branches can hold some of the weightier decorations.  N&B climb every rock, and N plays with every branck or stick.  This year, we watched a yellowish pup jump in a mud bog & came out looking like a black & white cookie.  
Many times, our tree come home & we see that it has a crooked trunk.  Or an oversight happened and there is a major gap between the branches.  Oops.  Each one is loved regardless for the memory of finding and selecting it for our home.  Each one is loved for the anticipation and promise of what they will bear the morning of December 25.  Each one is the best Christmas tree we’ve ever had. But, oh, this one?  This is one is most perfect tree we’ve ever had.     
Today’s post shares some (iPhone) snaps from our weekend excursion.  Hope you like them… (more gift ideas to come later today)
