After much looking everyone settled on the tree that both boys picked first (sometimes, no matter how much looking you do, you won't find a tree you like as much as the tree that first catches your eyes). Big Jamey was concerned about how tall it was and agreed to getting it only if I would help carry it. Which, I happily complied to. It turned out that these trees had relatively slender bases and were lighter than expected.
After roping our tree to the car, we were off to bring it home for decorating.
To give the tree a bit of perspective, I had James stand by it for this picture.
We had a blast decorating it and I am still amused that all decor stops about 1/3 from the top - even James couldn't reach that high. We have so enjoyed this tree and I definitely plan on heading back to the Lynches next year for another wonderful tree.
