Holiday Preparations!

It has been a family tradition as long as I can remember to get our Christmas tree the Sunday following Thanksgiving. We used to go cut our own even making trips to the woods when we were young. Eventually we ventured to tree farms and have recently made our trips much quicker by picking one already cut at the front of the tree farm. When cutting our own we probably found the perfect one right away but had to make sure and then forgot where the original one was. 2 hrs later we would finally settle. I think this year was a record. 3 pre cut trees in under 30 min. And a hay ride to follow. We had a great time. Of course this was a momentous photo op being the boys first Christmas tree hunt.
