After all the eating we did, the following day we went out in search for our Christmas Tree. It was another perfect Silverton day which made the hunt so enjoyable, exercise and sunshine. I don't move as quick as I use too, but Booker was always there by my side-basically waiting on me.
We drove all around, getting out and hiking in search for the perfect tree for our quaint living space. We brought a picnic of cheese and crusty bread along with delicious homemade hot chocolate to enjoy. Just up the road from the Epic Silverton Mountain we found a nice selection of trees, but would this one fit in our place? Michael brought his small hand saw to do the job and small piece of rope to drag it out. The work out came when we were thigh deep snow hiking out and back down to our truck with the tree. Thank goodness, because I sure could use it. When we arrived home, we turned on some Christmas tunes and put the tree up near the front window and began to decorate. Michael took care of the lights as I put hooks on the ornaments and began strategically placing the memories on the branches. We were so lucky to receive a big box of sparkling bulbs and essential decorations from Michael's Mom just the other day, or our tree would have been a bit bare, but not this year! Now all we need is some presents......I will be putting a red bow on her and placing her near the tree when she arrives-as she is the sweetest gift of all. Can you tell I am in love already?
