O Christmas Tree

Today, before our first snowstorm of the year got too intense, we braved the roads to go get our Christmas tree as a family. Now from looking at the pictures below you might think, "Wow, that's so great that Brian and Jenny decided go and cut down their own tree." Yeah, that would be great if we decided that. But we didn't.

Last night I was searching all over in the Internet for Christmas tree lots close to our house. I was lucky enough to find this great little one just up the road. I thought the proximity would be perfect with the upcoming inclement weather. The lot was called Choose & Cut Christmas Trees. I failed to read the "cut" part. I'm really more of a "chooser" than a "cutter" when it comes to buying Christmas trees. When we pulled up and saw a field of trees, saws, twine and a trailer with two employees we knew right away this wasn't our cup of tea.

But in true Nash form we went with it and it actually was a lot of fun. With the snow flying it felt like a real old-fashioned Christmas. I'll admit, it was a bit tricky getting that tree on the roof of our Passat while every other customer there remembered to bring their SUV but we got our tree home safe and sound and it's beautiful.


  1. Looks like the perfect Christmas afternoon! Here in Southern AZ, it's still 70 and 80 degrees with sunshine.

  2. Fantastic!
    Here in the northern part of Norway we have 6 degrees C. and very little snow.
    Our Christmas tree is still growing.. We dont use to take it inside until the 3. of December. I wish you and your family a merry Christmas and a happy new year
