Christmas Tree Adventure

When we went to find our Christmas tree, we decided go to part of the farm lot that had the (cheaper) "imperfect" trees left that would soon be cleared. We found a tree that was really full, but was a tad bit lopsided with some gaps.
Everyone took their turn helping cut down the tree. The trunk was huge. We counted 13 rings!
TIMBER!! Chuck was exhausted after cutting through that huge stump.
The tree was so big, it took some work getting it to even fit through the door.
If you look really close on the bottom right picture above, you can see the duct tape holding branches to the trunk. We also used bungee cords, twine, and then had to strategically string the lights in order to keep the branches up and fill the gaps.
Charly's turn to put the star on top.
