Well I might finally be getting caught up around here. Incredible. You might even see another post later today...
One of my favorite parts of Christmas is getting the tree. When I was little, we'd drive to the mountains and cut down a tree with our cousins - I have plenty of fond memories of that. As we got older, we decided to go with local trees (i.e. Home Depot). As we got even older, we decided to go without a tree. Or I'd go get one barely a few days before Christmas, right when I got home from college.
Now that Billy and I are starting our own traditions in our own home, we're going back to the early days of cutting down our own tree. And I LOVE it.
We piled into the car the day after Thanksgiving, while everyone was going crazy with the shopping. Bentley is SO ready to go pick out a tree!
|Hey Mom, What about this one? It's my size!|

They shook out our tree and baled it.
