|Our son, picking out the tree!|
(¸.•´ (¸.•` ♥ Our plan was to go to the Christmas Tree Farm and pick out our tree today. Our son was going to drive us there in his new truck, and we were going to pick up his grandma on the way, so she could pick out her tree too. We woke up to quite a bit of snow and 35 to 45 mile per hour winds... Very low visibility, practically a white out ~ in fact, it may have been a white-out. But we all went to the tree farm anyway! Crazy, yes... but there were a lot of other people there, picking out and cutting down their trees too. So, I guess we're not the only crazy ones. Haha! I was surprised... there were more people out and about than I thought there would be.
We had fun ~ in spite of the COLD, windy, snowy weather! I had never been to the tree farm before. My son and his dad went a couple of years ago and it was cold and snowy then too, but nothing like it was today. It's a pretty big tree farm, real nice. There was a beautiful, and very warm bonfire going, and they had benches set up around it, so that people could sit by the fire and warm up. There was a cute little place to buy hot chocolate and snacks. Once we picked out our tree, we walked over to the warm fire for a while... to thaw out!!
The tree is home now, and all set up in front of the window. It is still frozen in spots! We have plastic under the tree and we can hear it dripping... Once it's all thawed out, we will decorate it. Sure smells great in here, there's nothing like the fresh spruce fragrance of a real tree.

|All ready to take our tree home!|
