Picking the tree!



Today's the big day. By the way, the photo is from last year. As you can see it wasn't a very big tree. But it was fresh and had the perfect shape and smell. And these things are important. I hope we find one just like it later today!

    1. The great green monster is now standing quietly in the corner refusing to bark. I daren't approach. Maybe try hanging the things on it tomorrow. Hope it's calmed down by then. I think it tried to bite my r. thumb, . It's bigger than the usual one. A special price to you, the man with the axe said smilingly ;-)

    1. O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum,
      Wie grün sind deine Blätter!

      I've put the farmer in the picture, but he's wearing his cap. Well, they all do!
