The Legend of the Mighty Frasier Fir

Saturday morning Mom and Dad took me on their Christmas tradition out to Goldenmann Tree Farms to hunt and chop down our Christmas tree for 2007. Dad wanted a Frasier so he could keep imitating Howard Cosell - "Down goes Frasier! Down goes Frasier!" Mom wanted a Balsom because they're supposed to smell better. We hunted and hunted in 8 degree weather, and finally decided on this here Frasier.

Oh, it was a mighty tree! Dad was in charge of cutting it down while Mom and I stayed warm in the truck. Well, this tree ended up being lots, and lots, and lots, and lots of work for Daddy! And then he got it!!

We then loaded the tree into the truck and they put it in a shaker to shake off the loose needles and what not, they wrap it in a plastic netting, and then they haul it back to your truck for you! Nice kids.

We spent the rest of the afternoon decorating the tree, sipping on Enfamil spiked with peppermint schnapps, and listening too Christmas music. I think I'm going to like this holiday.

What a great tree! Your daddy must really be strong (and a good sport) to get that tree for you. Next year they will have to build a corral for the tree. Right? Hee Hee
