O' Christmas Tree

This year we drove to North Bend, and found a cute family tree farm, where we searched for the perfect tree, and then cut it down, and hauled it away by ourselves.  We were so excited for the adventure, as up till now most of our Christmas tree picking came from the parking lot of a certain hardware store (orange or blue).

We first warmed ourselves by the fire, grabbed a saw, and set off to find the perfect tree.  We found a few that came close, but we hadn't quite found the "one".  After warming ourselves again by the fire, and sipping on some hot cider, we went off in a different direction.  This time we found a few too many that we liked, but finally found the one for us.

Daddy sawed it down, and the kiddos yelled "timber" as it fell to the ground.  What an amazing fun family experience to start the season!!



  1. I love it! I am living vicariously through you!

  2. What a FUN adventure!! Love the pictures!!

  3. What a great tradition to start! That reminds me of my childhood - hunting down the perfect tree and cutting it yourself. Fun!

  4. Awww....little Nat looks so chilly with her cider. LOL

    Glad you had fun!!
