The great big tree......

This is old news but I thought that some of the family would want to know. Grandma Pedersen's great big pine tree, the one out front at the far South East corner is no more. A couple of weeks ago Larry and Donny began the process of removing the limbs from the tree. They cut off the top of the tree and the limbs in what was surely a massive undertaking.



I know it is sad but the tree was rotting from the inside out. The way the winds blow here in Utah and due to the slope of the hill heading East to the mountain means the tree would have most likely landed on Grandma's house. We are sad to see you go Mr. Tree but we are glad that Grandma is now safe. We will have to see how this affects the summer heat in the house as the tree blocked the heat of the sun from her home.

Bye Old Friend, you sheltered us from the sun and let us play under your boughs. We hid and sought behind your trunk and will miss you greatly. But we can't have you threatening our Grams! :)

Oh man, that is so sad. Justin and I used to climb that tree as kids. We weren't supposed to, but we did. Sneakily. Then we'd throw pine cones at people from the top. It was hilarious.

Thanks for taking care of Grams, Anj.

You know that RIP means rest in peace but everyone says it RRRRRRIIIIIPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!! That is how I imagine Cassi says it as she balls her self to sleep.

What a smart sister Anji has (I think I forgot an adjective that goes right before sister). Red heads, sheesh.
