charley brown's christmas tree

When I think of our very lovely Christmas tree, the first thought that comes to mind is - Charley Brown. Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all unthankful.

Yesterday as our family (5 kids, 6 adults, packed lunch, hot chocolate and a few saws) trekked up to the beautiful mountainous region in Payson, Arizona to hunt and cut down our tree.

The permit said Junipers and Pinion Pines. Have you ever seen a Juniper or Pinion Pine. If not, just think of Charley Brown's Christmas tree and you'll get an idea of the image.

Mark and Candace actually found their tree just up from this rock.

All in all it was a great trip. Kids running and playing and jumping and climbing and dads chasing after them. Sweet. I love family! Tonight, we'll add pretties to the Charley Brown tree.
