On December 1st Grammy and Grampa took the kids out to hunt for a Christmas tree while Mark and I were on a trip. They had only a bit of snow so it was pretty easy getting around while they looked. Here in Oregon you can get a $5 permit to cut your tree in the Deschutes National Forest, so there really is a fair amount of hunting involved!
A couple of weeks later we were finally able to go out and get our Christmas tree. We decided to drive up the Black Butte road this time. It took a while, but we found a mighty fine tree also!
