Since this is our last year to officially be able to truly "hunt" down our Christmas tree, we made sure to have our permit at the ready and added it to our schedules so we wouldn't forget.
We actually cut off about 18 inches from the top because it was a little ridiculous looking. So while we did cut the top off and tossed it outside, any resemblance there might have been to Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree was replaced by more of a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
And we love it.
Believe it or not, it's actually the best tree we've cut down living here in Colorado. I will miss hiking through the snowy woods and mountains looking for that tree each December.
Here are our fellow hunters who played their part by sledding and haloo-ing while Adam and I did the actual work.
