Our family experienced a first on Saturday. We went to a local farm to cut down our own Christmas tree. This, after the last few years of heading to Home Depot and picking up whatever they had left on their parking lot... A better experience and cheaper too! All trees were $25.
The only thing that would've made it a little better was some freshly falling snow.
That would be the ideal tree-cutting-down weather, don't you think?
But according to Keziah, it was already TOO cold.
When we finally found our perfect tree (a Douglas Fir, I think it is), Erik and Micah worked together to chop it down.
Then we tried to figure out how old it was - and we figured about seven years.
We put on some Christmas music and pulled out some Christmas treats.
And we got down to business doing some decorating.
Micah is getting tall enough to help with the upper half of the tree this year.
