Adventures at a Christmas Tree Farm

This past weekend, Chris and I headed up to Hannibal to Beckwith's Christmas Tree Farm. We rode on a wagon pulled by a big red tractor out to the trees, actually crossing over a river ... (over the river and through the woods ...)

Chris and I scoured the farm and picked out the perfect tree. ... Well, it was a little big, but Chris took care of that problem when he cut it down with his trusty hand saw.
They had this neat machine that wrapped the tree up for us so we could take it home.
Our pretty Christmas tree skirt.
The finished product. It'd have to say this is my best first Christmas tree ever. :-)
