Really falling down the mountain......careful Auntie Brooke!
How about this one?
I LOVE Christmas, it is my very favorite and in my house there are two trees. I have always loved looking for the perfect tree and often it would take hours in tree lots circling around looking for the tree I loved. My family hates shopping for the perfect tree in town but they enjoy the mountain search. We have a tree in the family room but have been unable to keep alive and green because of the fireplace, so we now have a beautiful pre-lit tree for the family room. It has all the keepsake ornaments on it. I used to have a tree flocked and placed in the piano room with red decorations but have since traded for a live tree directly from the mountains near our home. We invited my sister and her husband this year and went to Hagglar Canyon to search for our Christmas tree to place in the dining room near the stairs-at 12 feet tall. We packed the car with treats and hot chocolate, dressed for the weather and picked a perfect day. We did hike and I could not find the perfect tree!!! So we hiked some more and Kent found a tree, he cut it down and I did not like it, but Brooke did so they hauled it to their truck. Kent and I hiked some more, up to the very top of a steep hill in which Kent quickly pointed out mountain lion tracks bigger than a dinner plate. Needless to say the tree search began to quicken! I found the tree I loved, Kent cut it down and stood it in front of me and I hated it!! He told me "TOO BAD!"(there is more to the story , but it can not be posted) and hauled it to the truck. It turned out to be perfect and was a beautiful tree.
