December 21, 1998

After what happened last year there was no way they were going to cut their own on some godforsaken Minnesota Christmas tree farm so we took two cars over to the nursery--Margaret, Jim, Grandma Steffen, Aunt Gwen, Uncle Robert, and of course the two around whom the entire holiday revolved: Sarah (4½) and David (2¾).
One room was converted into a seemingly snowy arbor. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, the one wearing a mask as he uses a shopvac to reverse blast cut trees clamped in floorstands with a sticky white foam that's supposed to be snow but would look more at home on a chocolate doughnut.
