    Doesn't get any more fresh than that.

    Clark: We're kicking off our fun old fashion family Christmas by heading out into the country in the old front-wheel drive sleigh to embrace the frosty majesty of the winter landscape and select that most important of Christmas symbols.
    Audrey: We're not coming all the way out here just to get one of those stupid ties with Santa Clauses on it are we?
    Clark: No, I have one of those at home.

    Ellen: Clark, Audrey's frozen from the waist down.
    Clark: That's all part of the experience, honey.


    Todd: Hey Griswold. Where do you think you're gonna put a tree that big?
    Clark: Bend over and I'll show you.
    Todd: You've got a lot of nerve talking to me like that Griswold.
    Clark: I wasn't talking to you.

    Clark: The most enjoying traditions of the season are best enjoyed in the warm embrace of kith and kin. Thith tree is a thymbol of the thpirit of the Griswold family Chrithmath.


    Ok, I'm done now. Enjoy!

    That's actually a young spruce tree. Yes it was cold as hell. Close to -25 with wind chill. Actually got frost burn on my nose from driving with my helmet up looking for the tree, lol. Well worth it to keep her happy.

    Nice tree! About all I see around here is red cedar, unless it's someone's landscaping! Red cedar ain't much of a Christmas tree!
