finding the perfect tree

One of my absolute most favorite family traditions is looking for and cutting down the most perfect Christmas tree to adorn our living room the entire month of December.  We always head out to the Christmas tree farm the weekend after Thanksgiving, regardless of the weather or the crowd levels, and this year was no exception.  The Saturday after Thanksgiving was quite cold, but the sunshine made for a beautiful outing.

 As soon as we got to the part of the tree farm that had the tallest trees, we spotted a perfect tree right away.  But, because we are human, and we have to wonder if the grass is greener on the other side, we made Kade stand watch at the first tree while we looked around a bit more.

 In the end, we decided that the first tree we spotted was the most perfect tree there, and began cutting it down!

Oh, how I hope that as my children grow up, they never forget the fun we had in the freezing cold, picking out our perfect Christmas tree year after year!
