Annual Christmas Tree Outing
Every single year since I was born (and BEFORE) my family has made the annual trek to the Nutter Tree Farm to cut down our Christmas Tree. I'm happy to say that as a married lady, my husband and I have carried on the tradition with my parents, cutting down our own tree with them. And next year we'll pass along the fun to our little baby boy.
It is probably one of my FAVORITE family activities that we do during the year! It's a very serious process. We wake up EARLY, try to get to the farm first making sure to pick a properly shaped tree with no holes or a lopsided trunk. We also try to aim to find a tree that will fit in our tiny house and every year we over estimate and get a tree that takes up our entire living room. I wouldn't have it any other way!
This year the air was brisk and snow lightly fell as we searched for our trees. It was nearing Christmas perfection! I kinda hoped that Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye would pop out at any second. They did not, but once again, we made great memories and have beautiful trees to remember the morning by!
Do you have a favorite holiday tradition? We always manage to be the first people at the farm yet this year a ton of people beat us to it!My poor mom, Maya dragged her all around the farm. She couldn't help but search for all the deer she was smelling! While the pickings here slim this year, thanks to deer and drought, we managed to find some beautiful trees!Mom and Dad's tree!Our tree!My mom loves this picture... I think I take it every year. One year Dave carried a tree on his head. I was really proud...?Another year come and gone, can't wait to bring baby boy next year!!
