Yesterday was our annual tree hunt. It is tradition every year to go the day after Thanksgiving. Seeing as it was in the 60's, it felt a little odd, but none the less. And it was the babe's very first!!
Buying a real Christmas tree can be a hefty cost when you are on a tight budget :) And we just so happened to discover a place 15 minutes from our house this year that was selling all their trees, u-cut, for $20 -- any tree, any size. How could we pass that up.
Of course, it was a no frills kind of visit! No horse drawn wagon to take us out in the fields!
And no sled to drag the tree back with :)
Ha! Sorry, these pictures make me laugh!
But that is ok. Things like this are what make traditions all the more fun - you never know what will happen. We had the whole tree farm all to ourselves and there was a cute old lady at the house who took our $20 and watched us tie it onto the roof of the car.
Now today, I decorate!
