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!
