Right before the snow really hit the Sierra's we headed out to get some firewood and cut our Christmas Tree. We haven't lived near mountains for a long time so its fun to load up and take the kids exploring. Ben had fun playing -I mean working with his new chain saw. Rhone was a pretty good helper. It was fun to go exploring. We always have a live Christmas Tree at our house, but prices in Cali are a little steep. So we found the closest National Forest where we could also cut our tree. Getting our tree was quite the debacle but in the end the tree turned out absolutely beautiful- but a little gigantic.
