Our school/work schedules finally coincided and we were able to go get a tree! We went on down to Alaska Mill and Feed and when the guy asked us what kind of tree we wanted Kirsten says "I want a fat one!". The guy immediately brought us back a nice little plump example of tree and we then determined that it was ours to keep. In and out in 10 minutes. not bad.

Our little tree's birth certificate. Keep away from heat? Oops. Yeah, we ended up moving it across the living room later. (After the ornaments were on). Ah, good times.

I'm be finding pine needles for the next 5 years...

Yes! We're almost there! My job was to put the hooks on the ornaments, while Kirsten put them on the tree. I think that was probably the best idea.

FINISHED! Our very first LIVE tree. Of course, thats not where it's placed right now, but all the same. Good times. Thirsty little guy though...

The night wasn't without it's casualties though. Poor little guys. Wrong place, wrong time.
