A Stu-Be Christmas

Last week we set the date: Monday, December 1 at 4:40 p.m. It was the time all Stu-Be resident assistants were supposed to be ready for a mission. Our mission? Find the perfect Christmas tree for our lobby.

After our five minute drive we stepped out into 30 degree weather with one saw, ten people and two cameras.
After a quick picture of the group, someone decided he found the tree of choice and wouldn't take no for an answer...well, really he just took the challenge to climb a tree.

The second tree we stood by had a crooked top and still didn't meet the height criteria so we walked on. Finally, as our fingers were going numb we spotted "the one."
After taking turns sawing we took it for shaking then wrapping and finally loading. Hot chili was a great break from the cold as we thawed out. Then a little sharing of hot chocolate (sharing in the eyes for Steven..so sorry) and decorating. All this to make a very inviting lobby and excited students. Jason was right, there really is something about a live tree!!
