Finding the Perfect Tree

This morning we all set out on an adventure to cut down our own Christmas tree. This is something we've talked of doing for several years, but due to money and/or time, we just have never done it. The kids were SO excited and Rachel kept asking if we were to the "Christmas farm" yet. We drove into the farm to so many trees!

Rachel ran up to the first tree and gave it a big hug. "I love this one!"

Garth wanted to get this because as he said, "We could fit a TON of presents under this one!"

This is the one we selected. It is nice and full and is the perfect height for our ceiling.

Benjamin had great fun "helping" Garth with the saw. He also enjoyed helping him tie it on the top of the van.

I will post pictures of the decorated tree as soon as we get it finished. It is beautiful in the living room!!

Oh how fun! We have never had a real Christmas tree! Tom is against them! lol He is afraid of the mess I think. I grew up with them and just love the smell! Can't wait to see it all decorated!
