Finding the Perfect Christmas Tree

The best part about Christmas is finding the PERFECT tree!  Here in Northern Minnesota there are tons of great trees to choose from so we get to be picky!  The whole family bundles up and treks out into the woods, and we usually find the tree we want in the first 15 minutes, but there could always be a better one just around the corner…so the hunt lasts for at least a couple hours.

Once we all agree on a tree we take turns with the saw, and dad carries it out of the woods. Back at home we crank up the Christmas tunes and start decorating the tree. Everyone has their favorite ornaments to hang and each ornament holds a special story to share.  A great time to remember previous years and solidify our family traditions.  We usually round out the day watching some of our favorite holiday movies, like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and of course National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

Happy Holidays from my family to yours!!!
