O' Christmas Tree

In the past, we've gone to a rather popular, pricey Christmas tree farm.  And every year, I say "I can't believe we paid that much for our Christmas tree....and to ride the tractor/wagon....and to have our tree bailed....and to let the kids go on the slide...."  We always have fun.  But it always adds up to a spendy outing.
So this year, I did some research and found a lesser known Christmas tree farm only two miles down the road from our previous choice.  It's basic.  It's simple. And the prices were reasonable.

They didn't have any hot chocolate or cider for sale.  But they did have this blazing fire for us to warm up by.

In fact, it was almost too warm! This was as close as we could get to it.
The nice man there gave us a saw and sent us on our way, driving through the Christmas tree farm in our car.   It was quiet, peaceful and so easy to wander and pick the perfect tree.  (And we were surprised by how many perfect trees we had to choose from!)
After a short search, and a few snapshots taken of the kids running through the trees, we found the tree we wanted!
Dan did the cutting and the kids helped tie it to the top of the car.
After Dan made sure the tree was secure, we were on our way!
We were so thankful for not only no rain, but a blue sky! It was the perfect day to get a Christmas tree!!
Fortunately, Dan was off this weekend so we even got the tree in the house and decorated!  
Need another gift idea for teachers, friends or for yourself?  Come back tomorrow to read about a fun one that will cost you less than $10!
