Oh Yooper Tree...

The last time Riley and Lindsey were here, they decided they wanted to bring home to Chicago a real Yooper tree for their Christmas tree.

We took a ride to our property and scouted for the perfect one and found it!

Steve and Riley here discussing how they are going to go about this...

Steve had grabbed an old sheet and rope from the garage before we left on our quest for the best.

So while the guys tied the tree to the roof of Riley's Jeep, Lindsey and Gus played frisbee while I took pictures. (Aren't I always?)

Then I took a family photo before they trekked the 7 hour trip back home. Hey, Gus, look this way...

And here it is all trimmed! 

I hope your Holiday trimming, shopping, and baking are coming along nicely for all of you out there. I don't need snow to understand the reason for the season, however, for those of us (like me) who live in an area that usually has snow around the holidays, it just seems to be a part of the season and makes my heart sing.

But I'm not complaining about this gorgeous weather we've been having in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It's 43 degrees right now and the sun is shining and the dogs just raced past the window in their haste to chase a red squirrel.

I almost thought twice about hanging the sheets on the line today. I said to myself, whaaat, it's December 7.

So I threw them into the dryer.
