One nice thing about Idaho is that you can pay $10 to get a permit and go chop down your own Christmas tree. We went with Tyson, Brett, and Matt up to the mountains yesterday and picked out a tree we liked. It may be a little skimpy, but we like it. We had to hack off the bottom two and a half feet to get it into our apartment (the ceiling is only seven feet tall), but that's okay. We say no to fake trees!
