Merry Christmas and The Sapaing

(whoa! a computer! how cool!)

Grabbing a moment escape from newborn-land, we managed to harvest a Christmas tree from the farm. Every time I look around the farm, I realize there are more and more trees that I had not noticed before. The one we chose for our sapin (… or sapaing as they say in deep country France) was near the tennis court. It looks like some branches may have been cut before. It was never going to thrive as an evergreen and therefore was perfect for our first Christmas here at the farm.
Brent used Alice the chainsaw to cut ‘er down. The kids quickly decorated it. It now happily hangs out in the Library waiting for Christmas day where it will be the center of attention.
