First we did the traditional finding of the Candy Cane Tree,
and then we found the tree we would cut and bring home. It looks really tall in this picture. It did not look so tall when we were standing in that field. It looks really, really tall in the living room, where it does not quite fit. I don’t want to cut the top, but certain people inform me that the star shouldn’t bend forward and rest on the ceiling. Bah humbug.
But back at the farm, a strange man wielded a saw,
a medium-sized girl performed The Dance of the Christmas Tree Stump,
and then the children participated in the annual Saying We Want to Help Carry the Tree
and Then Changing Their Minds.
And at the end, we found a cold little toad, which has long* been known to bring good luck to all who meet him.
We’ve been so busy today making advent wreaths that we haven’t gotten around to decorating the tree yet, but we do like having it in the house.
