But after Andy grew up the trips to the mountain to get a tree seemed less important and less fun. So in 2010 we stopped going to the high country to find a tree and just got an artificial one.
I sure do miss those trips and the excitement of going to find a tree, preferably in the snow.
|This was the last time we went up to Sparta NC to find a tree, and this is the tree we got. It was December 19, 2009 and the mountains had just been delivered a decent snowstorm.|
|I'm pretty sure this is the 2008 tree. That's our cat Sophie strolling by.|
