This story is not finished.
I so want to dig into our photo files and pull out the earliest photos we have, that very first time we visited Brewers Tree Farm, when John and Jarrod were so little, wearing Jeff's work gloves that were too big, and Elizabeth and Ashley were still at home, in high school...and John and Jarrod had to drag the tree (with a bit of help from Jeff)...oh yes! A then and now story has got to be told!!!!
It was interesting finding a tree this year. Jeff had spoke to Mr. Brewers this morning and heard of the disappointment at the slim pickings of Virginia pines this year. But, we headed out anyway and resolved to find a tree, no matter the size, because we just didn't want to have to buy one in town - just not the same.
John was tip toeing through the Cyprus trees with a meager little Virginia Pine tree like the Grinch was stealing Christmas. Jeff caught me laughing while we were driving home - couldn't pass up an unsolicited photo of me.
