Cutting the Tree

We took a family outing this morning to cut the Christmas tree. W is too little to manage the bow saw, but maybe he'll be big enough next year when he's three.

Earlier in the week I marked the tree with an orange balloon.

And here's the downed tree on the way up to the house.

I had to leave to go to my wreath-making workshop right after we got home, so I'll post inside photos tomorrow or the next day after we decorate the tree.
