The DeBoer Family Christmas Tree

On Saturday, December 1st, Shawn and I National Lampooned ourselves the first-ever DeBoer Family Christmas Tree! During the first blizzard of the winter season, we headed south to Hampton, MN to the Hampton Hills Tree Farm. Right around Noon, Shawn took the saw to the pine and before I could grab the end to brace the fall, it was down! We hauled it to the SUV, Shawn lifted it on top of the beast, we tied it down as best as we could and then we headed home.

Below is the beauty on top of the beast just after we pulled in to the driveway.

Next is the naked tree propped up in our new stand in the corner of the living room.

And finally, here it is, all decorated, lit and full of life!

To add to the ambiance of the area, we've also hung our stockings on the fireplace. Ironically there are just enough shelves for each member of Team DeBoer. Mine is at the top, hung from the "J", Shawn's hangs in the middle from the "O" and Norman brings up the rear with the "Y". You can't tell by the picture, but his stocking says Naughty, because he is.

Merry Christmas!
