A Hunting We Will Go!

Saturday morning Mark (my roommate), Laura (don’t ask, its complicated) and myself drove out to Suffolk to bag a few christmas trees. One for the Garmozeo home, and one for Laura’s house. Our farm of choice was Santa’s Forest & Nursery. It was so much fun!

I can remember going to pick out (precut) trees with my parents and brother as a kid. But picking out a fresh tree… its a whole new experience!  

Our three member sudo family always has a fun time together. I thought I would share a little of the magic.

Of course… sadly the time will come when our trees will have to be “discarded”. But we have fun with that to. :)


PS: Thank’s Laura for the wonderful pictures!

    No, I did not dye my hair. A lot of my highlights have grown out. For some reason, the underside of my hair always looks darker. :)
