We, like many other families, go and get our Christmas tree from a tree farm. Most of my friends actually have artificial trees, but we have never had a fake tree! Last year we all started going with my dad to get the tree, and it is now a fun tradition.
It’s pretty much what you would expect- a farm of treeeeeeees. We have a fourteen foot tree (with twenty two foot ceilings, it fits the space), so that one is shipped from Quebec. Mine however needs to be cut down, so I headed out into the tree fields to find my pick!
Ahhhhhh, we’ve found it! Dad cut it down like a pro! (He built a log home, so I suppose he is a pro!)
They do have a sleigh ride at the farm, but we didn’t have a chance to ride it- on the menu for next year!
We visited the petting zoo portion, Tiny Kid got to see some animals that are him-sized!! I love the mini horses 😀 (Byyyyyye-byyyyyye Lil’ Sebaaaaaaastiaaaan)
We headed inside, grabbed some hot dogs, cookies, and hot chocolate. It’s a nice barn with a good amount of seating, and very Christmas-y decorations! And yes, those ornaments are jean pockets 🙂
Fast forward twenty four hours, and we have a fourteen foot decorated tree! You have to love Christmas!
Of course I have a Hermione Granger ornament, duuuh.
Ballet dancers are found allll around the tree!
There is a lovely assortment of Alpha Gam ornaments (mostly squirrels). This is my newest acquisition from the Alpha Gam Boutique!
If Belle isn’t on the tree, something is wrong.
I adore this ballet costume, M’s family picked the perfect ornament for me!
M picked the other perfect ornament for me: A WESTIE NUTCRACKER. (I’ll let that sink in.)
Mom and I grabbed matching Guard ornaments when we went to the Palace of Holyroodhouse!
Do you have any tree related traditions?? Any must-have ornaments??
