Friday with Kray: Our Christmas Tree

As projects go, this was an easy one for the husband.  Nevertheless, an important one to our family.  We don't have any organic tree growers near us, as far as I know.  So, we made the short drive to a local, conventional Christmas tree farm in early December.  Running around a field of trees and breathing fresh air is half the fun.
We chose the prettiest, medium-sized tree we could find.  Chopping it down with the little hand saw adds a fun sense of accomplishment for dads, I think.  This little farm in the valley regularly replants its trees.

We chose a Norway spruce.  It's a beautiful tree that holds lots of ornaments. I think the branches are just a bit thinner than on a Fraser fir.  Hopefully, plenty of water will keep it fresh through Christmas.
