Subject:GIANT f-ing tree!
Time:11:26 pm
We did a lot today, but it didn't feel rushed and it was perfect weather and an awesome day.

We:
-woke up late, around 10am.
-walked through the neighborhood cemetery, the oldest in the city, for the first time.
-walked to the West Fulton business district and visited a bunch of antique shops
-went to cut down our gigantic Christmas tree, our now traditional blue spruce, for $18.
-somehow managed to get the thing home (it was almost as big as our car! hahaha)
-somehow managed to stuff it through the front door and get it vertical with friendly neighbor Tim's help.
-went to see Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist at the 2nd run theater.
-cleaned the kitchen!

When I say this tree is huge...it's frickin' huge! The base of the trunk is about 5 1/2" in diameter. I had to cut off a foot so that it would fit inside our 9 1/2' ceilings. And it must be at least 8 feet wide at the bottom. When we were cutting it down, it didn't seem that much bigger than last year's tree. But, then when I had to get help to lift it onto the car and it was spilling over the sides...that's when we realized that maybe it was a bit TOO big.

Tomorrow we get to decorate it, but we're worried we won't have enough lights! It will still be wonderful though! We'll figure it out.

Olson's Christmas Woods, 555 10 Mile Road, Comstock Park, three miles west of U.S. 131, 616-887-7612. Blue spruce are $18 any size. Hours are 10 a.m. to dusk every day. Free boughs with tree purchase. Can drive cars to tree area. Hot chocolate on weekends. Spruce, large trees, saws provided.

I'd go soon. They're starting to get picked over. Especially compared to last year.
