The Tree hunt

Last year around this time, we were reminded that we now longer lived in the Christmas tree capital. All of the sudden I was expected to fork out 30-50 dollars for a tree I would have paid $15 for the year before. Luckily we found a place to cut down our trees for only $10. There is a paper company in the area that owns a lot of land and for $10 you can get a day pass and go cut down a tree. So I convinced all of the family to join us. The tree's are always slightly charlie brownish...but that's part of the charm, right? Our tree this year actually turned out pretty great, although it's big!

Claire loved Christmas tree hunting. And loved it even more that her cousins were there.

All done!

We gave up our charlie brown trees about ten years ago. The last time we went to the mountains for our $5 tree we literally ended up drilling holes into the trunk and adding additional branches. It was sad!

Looks like you guys had lots of fun!
