Christmas (Tree) is Over

Today the huge Christmas tree came down.

It was cut into smaller pieces and taken away by snowmobile.

I took today's shots from the sled behind our snowmobile. It turns out our steering column rusted over summer, and I am not quite strong enough to turn well. (And I was so excited for the return of snowmobiles with snow!) Phil drove us to school, and I walked with a sled to pick up our preschooler at the end of the day. Another mom gave us a ride on the way home- thank you! I'm grateful we didn't have to walk over a mile home!

Cloverland Electric helped put the tree up. They were here to take it down today.

Downtown Mackinac Island looks different without its giant Christmas tree! The Christmas season may be over, but winter is here! (We have damp mittens drying near the heater to prove it!)
