We went and picked out our Christmas tree today at a tree farm. We went there last year and thought it was fun so we decided to try it again this year. We finally decided a pine tree with some character!! Some of the trees they have are soooo huge, like our last year's tree. It took up half the living room. We tried to pick one that wasn't quite so full this time! They give you a handsaw and let you cut your own tree down. Em was so excited to help cut the tree down. Then we strapped it to the top of the truck and headed home!! Now we just have to find the stand and get it in here!
