Grateful for my Jolly day

img_5143

On Saturday we went to a local tree farm. We hiked up the hill and wandered through perfectly flawed trees! They were each beautiful in their own way and yet had simple imperfections, a new and welcome theme I have been enjoying.

I looked around at huge trees and tiny ones showcasing the beauty of Idaho.

We finally found the one and Heme was so happy that he was allowed to use the saw to cut down the tree.

Soos helped her brother and then he hauled it down the hill.

I found out they accepted cash only and so we went back to town, dropped Heme off at home and returned for our tree. Soos loaded it up proving her female strength and skills and was quite pleased when she completed this task!

We had looked at pictures the night before trying to see what we liked as far as decorating. The lights were hung, ornaments placed and in the end the kids insisted that I place the star little D had picked out!

Joy is found in the simple and ordinary things that we allow to be remarkable!

Love Lynn

  1. As a family it was always special to cut down our own tree we picked out and decorate it later while listening to holiday music, sipping hot chocolate and eating cookies. We even use to make popcorn and string it around the tree 🙂 Beautiful tree and family memories…

  2. Joy in the simple things…but a fresh cut Christmas tree, and all that goes with picking it out ?? Not so simple. Just precious.

  9. If we can find beauty in trees displaying imperfections, maybe we can find beauty in ALL people since we are ALL imperfect. I’ll bet this was one fun day!!

  11. Congratulations with your first real Christmas tree, sister 😀 It is beautiful.

    I don’t know, if you already did this, but I will tell you anyway; It is a good idea to feed the tree with water daily, then you avoid that it loose all the needles, which also gives a mess and make the tree less beautiful.

    Enjoy your new tree ❤
