Hunting for Christmas Trees

This photo was taken just after Thanksgiving, 1997 on a Christmas tree farm in rural Northeastern Connecticut (Brooklyn).

It was a tireless search, but the ultimate christmas tree was "bagged". Just look at the rosy cheeks of exhaustion. This picture was a monumental undertaking. My children hate to have there picture taken and when any attempt is made, never cooperate. Some things never change!
