Happy Christmas Month!!

Dave and I cut down a Christmas tree from the wilderness that is Basalt, CO. After 2 hours of searching, driving, hiking, huffing and puffing Dave and I found our tree! Oh it was beautiful. A Blue Spruce, perfectly shaped and ready to be decorated. Then we read our rules and regulations of the forest service: #1 No cutting down the Colorado Blue Spruce. LAME. Instead, we found a Fir tree that is a little special. It smells wonderfully Christmasy and looks just spectacular. I couldn't get the video of Dave  chopping down our tree (3 inches in diameter) with an axe courtesy of Phil, but I found this picture of him taking some practice swings.


Our Tree!


In Baby news, the baby is kicking me. It feels a little like popcorn...for now. We will post again in 1 week to let you know if Baby D is girl or boy!!

Phil will be so happy when he reads that Dave used his groomsmen gift! Great day. Excited for the big announcement!

Such a pretty tree! And hooray for getting out there and cutting it down yourselves - that's the Christmas spirit! :-) We CAN'T WAIT for your announcement next week. I have a prediction about Baby D, and we'll see if I'm right...

Hey! Your Christmas sweater is a little snug. Probably from Baby Popcorn....not that you over-ate...:)

Can't wait to hear, Nik! Love and miss you. Popcorn...from within. I am trying to imagine...nope, I can't. :-)
