Yay! It's finally December! Of course we have a lot of great Christmas ideas coming your way. So stay tuned through out this whole month so you can get lots of fun decorating ideas, recipes, and other fun projects. We LOVE Christmas and have so many amazing ideas for all of you to try. But before we get started we wanted to share our fun weekend adventure.
This weekend we went and cut down our very first real Christmas tree! Yes you read that correctly, we cut down our own tree! It was a lot of fun and we recommend it to anyone who has a tree farm near them. If you don't believe us scroll through our pictures to see, or better yet, go cut down your own! :)
At the farm you get to walk through rows and rows of trees until you find the perfect one for your family! At first Noah wasn't too impressed, so he napped as we searched for a tree.
After awhile of us looking and comparing the trees we deemed perfect for us, Noah finally woke up to help us decide which one to take home. After all, we all had to agree on the same tree.
Finally, we all agreed on this one. It may seem silly, but it was 'the one', the perfect tree. :)
After we chose the tree, it was time to chop it down and take it home!
But don't worry, we let Jake do that part!
Next we had to drag the tree up the hill to be picked up by the tractor. We even got to take a short hay ride back to the barn. Once we arrived at the barn our tree was shaken, netted, and ready to go home!
We took our tree home and immediately put it up. We strung popcorn and decorated the tree while enjoying Christmas music. It was a really great way to kick off this crazy month. And the real tree looks much better than any store bought tree we could have gotten.
Altogether, the trip to the tree farm was worth it! We will be going back next year and recommend it for anyone who doesn't have a tree yet. Its a great weekend family event!
Come back tomorrow to see our first Christmas project! This month is gonna be packed with a ton of fun Christmas ideas that we know you all can use, so don't miss out! :)
