We had a hard freeze early in December. It even snowed in Chico just a bit (it didn't stick). So, we decided to go up and cut down our Christmas tree. Unfortunately, the Christmas tree permit place was not open on the weekdays. So instead, we went to Forest Ranch and played in the snow. The kids loved it. The snow was too dry to make a snowman. That was a big bummer. Hopefully we'll get the chance to do that later.
