Life with Leo

Our Christmas Tree Adventure

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 10:57 pm

Ever since last year’s tree, which was only 12 feet tall, Sophie has been talking about getting a bigger one.  Then, today, we got a call from our neighbor Kara saying that Ingraham’s, our local tree farm  (on our street, no less), would be closed after tomorrow.

So Leo and Sophie quickly got out the tape measure.

Then we headed up the road and started measuring.

This one was too spindly.

This one was too short.

And this one was just right!  At 14.5 feet, a new personal best!  (Looks like the tree pruners haven’t been able to reach the top of this one for a year or two!)

The tree came down quickly.  Jupiter was very helpful.

Good thing we didn’t have to drive far!

The lights are on! Just don’t turn on the ceiling fan!
