Fierce Hunters
Today, on a cold and snowy day in Michigan, M and I went to go hunt and kill our very own Christmas tree. We crept into the woods, found a young one of the perfect height and fluffiness, sneaked up behind it, and chopped it down. We then dragged it back to his car, tied it up, mounted it on the roof, and drove it home with us.

Successful hunters!

Upon our triumphant return, we propped it up in the corner of his lower floor and draped lights and sparkly things all over it to humiliate it.

Now I am drinking hot German wine (Glühwein), and admiring out handiwork. All in all, a satisfying afternoon!

I think, technically, given this is a plant, you are actually fierce and successful gatherers.

It may be a plant, but it is a viscous plant with lots of pointy-pointy fangs needles.

They were lucky to escape with their lives!

All hail the mighty hunters! (Looks like it dressed out nicely!)

Yay mighty hunters!

I wouldn't consider that 'humiliating' the tree, rather 'allowing it to fulfill its mission in life'. (It's not nice to embarrass your prey, after all....)

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed reading your post and viewing your photos. The end result, the decorated tree, is bueautiful.

What a pretty tree. Glad we got to chat on the phone for 5 mins this weekend. I can't wait to have spiced wine next weekend. It's been too long for Xmas drinks. :)
