Went for our Christmas tree today.  Although the weather was bleak, we had fun. xmas treesxmas trees

 This year we went to a new place. kodeys

   After scouring every field, we finally agreed on a Frasier Fir.  She is a beauty! timber!

We had it bailed and put on the car, then wandered in to the barn. My son and his wife found a beautiful tree inside.  The barn was interesting.  Mr. Kody told us it had been built in 1947 by his father without any drawings.  Just built it as he went.barn structure

  Needless to say it has stood the test of time and is still standing as well as housing these trees for sale.  It was a magnificent barn.barn

The whole day was fun filled and productive.  Family time spent well with my husband, son, and my other son and his wife, oh yes and their dog Fred.our crew

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.  In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.  ~Larry Wilde
