We had considered swapping our 'fake' Xmas tree for a real this year. Rydell Refuge is located near Erskine, MN. The refuge hosts an annual tree-cutting event. Armed with an arsenal of saws and an axe (chainsaws prohibited), Todd, Ian, and I set out for Ersldne. After all, who wouldn't love 'tromping' through the woods in ankle deep snow in -7 degree weather? I didn't take long after I started complaining, Todd found the 'One'. Ian quickly picked up the axe and began a 'frenzied' attack upon the tree. With lumberjack-like precision, Todd sawed for what seemed like an eternity. Finally, the 25 'footer' made its' descent to earth. Caught up in the moment, I shouted'Four'! We had conquered the "beast"! I soon found out different. "Are you kidding"? Todd asked. "No way will the whole tree fit in the back"! "Really?", I responded. After sawing off 18 feet, the tree was finally ready for transport. Once at home, we encountered another dilemma; getting the tree through the door! 10 inches later, it was in our house. FYI, real trees shed like crazy! They also 'suck' up an enormous amount of water too. Like a Harley, real trees require constant attention! However, the sacrifice doesn't compare to the cherished family memories that have been created. I can't wait to it again next year! December 14th: Rev. Leroy and Beverly Aufenkamp welcome son Nathan home from California for Xmas. Nathan is a student at Trinity Bible College in Costa Mesa, CA. A noticeable weather difference: 70 degrees to - 5 degrees. Welcome home Nathan!

Since his batch of the first Soup du Jour was quickly consumed, Kip started on a second, which I was privy to later in the day. Philidelphia Steak and Cheese Soup. A nice spicy soup loaded with green pepper, onions, mushrooms and steak. Definitely not vegetable beef. Thick, not brothy and full of flavor. Some folks have taken notice of my detestation of peas. Mary Lou Stewart wrote a nice note this week, but added that she had called Santa personally and asked that he drop a big bag of peas down my chimney. She also noted that if he can't do it, maybe Kelly could. I will never say a kind word about a pea. At least, the vegetable or fruit or whatever the hideous creature is. IJru00h with the IJuttck r I)' I,aurel Brtlsseau The Brush Bunch held their annual Christmas party with 17 members present and one guest & three members unable to attend. Amywas in charge of the decorating and it was all very festive. The planned pot luck is always a good meal and we ate well. We also played some silly games and prizes were given to the winners. The gift exchange is always a painting or hand made gift. It is always fun to see what creative things people have been busying themselves with. In spite of the cold day--we all enjoyed our last meeting of the year. We will reconvene on the 7th of January. Dave P Gray supplied the picture to go with today's article. Mary Ellen was also at our party but she was playing photographer that day so wasn't in the picture with the rest of our members. We especially thank the local papers for continuing to print the Busy Brush Bunch articles and all of you who take the time to read them. Stop in and see us each Tuesday at the Chamber/ Gallery--coffee is usually on and there could even be a goodie or two available to share. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Busy Brush Bunch.
