Last Saturday, we did my favorite yearly activity; we went to our favorite Christmas tree farm and cut down our beautiful Christmas tree. It’s a yearly tradition that James and I adopted fifteen years ago, when we put up our first tree together! We walked out to the cow pasture, behind our humble, mobile home, and cut it down. It was so big we had to anchor it to the wall to hold it up!
Cutting down our Christmas tree is even more fun now with the kiddos!!! They make the season a true delight. The farm we go to gives hayrides to the evergreen fields. It winds around past a pretty lake. It’s very scenic and relaxing. We are dropped off to go on our hunt for the perfect tree! Once we find it, James does the manly thing and saws it down for us. The tractor and wagon come back, after a bit, to pick us up, along with our lovely evergreen. Once we arrive back, they shake and prepare the tree, while we visit the quaint, little, gift shop, where Santa hangs out and hot chocolate is served. It’s a charming place. I am already looking forward to next year!
Our Christmas tree outing is a yearly tradition for Mom and Dad D too! It’s fun having them along with us.
My decorations are up and we are really enjoying them. We rearranged the living room and the tree fits perfectly in front of the window!
We all have different gifts, so we all have a different ways of saying to the world who we are. ~Mister Rodgers
