We had wandered for two hours when in a joking voice I said, "How about this one?" The tree looked strange with a long branchless trunk. The lowest branches were 6 feet from the ground. The tree stood up in the air like a lollipop, with that long bare trunk towering over us. It took us only a few moments to cut it down, since the trunk was at the perfect height to cut. We didn't even have to stoop over to do it. We cut down our lollipop tree leaving a 5 foot long stump sticking up from the ground.
I wanted to decorate with our vintage ornaments, but I was vetoed and we have a silver tinsel tree again this year.
Our family tree tradition includes hiding a golden nest among the branches.

This year has flown by! I can't believe we are half way to Christmas already.
