Christmas Tree Hunt

We found our tree!
We found our tree!

Each year we go out on the “snowmachine” riding through the woods looking for the perfect tree.  Some years it is brutally cold (-40) but this year it was above zero.  It is always a fun time and the girls are asking earlier and earlier each year “when can we go get the tree?”  Once we get it home it takes some rigging to get the “Dr. Seuss” tree into a stand.  The trunk is only about 1.5″ in diameter and you can not find stands to fit them.  The frozen tree takes almost 24 hours to thaw out enough to decorate and soaks up enough water to drown a camel.  We will post a picture once it is decorated.  Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

Christmas Eve I was able to do a special Christmas program for the Bluegrass Hour.  According to feedback I have received there were a lot of folks listening in over the internet.  One friend from Ecuador even called to let me know that they were listening.

With Christmas being on a Sunday this year there was much discussion about the timing for opening the gifts.  We decided after lunch much to the dismay of the girls.  As you can see from the picture Sabrina, Hattie, Natalie and Miriam comprised the “girls choir” at church.  Sabrina and Miriam also played a special song on the piano as well.


We pray that you had an opportunity to celebrate the saviors birth in a special way this year.
