The Great Christmas Tree Hunt of 2013

Last year we found the perfect Christmas tree farm, it's ran by an older man and his wife. He deals with the tree selling and she sells wreaths that she makes. It's a really nice place, not to far from home and really reasonably priced. Saturday morning we layered up the kids clothes, got their boots out and went on the hunt for our perfect tree. We really liked probably the 6th one we saw but we still walked around the farm about 3 times just to make sure we didn't miss any. At one point I made Lyla stop so I could take her picture by a shorter tree, Adam had kept walking and the owner guy had walked by and was walking in the opposite direction (wearing a jacket almost the same color as Adam's) and Lyla started following him thinking it was Adam! I was laughing so hard I almost couldn't stop her! 

We cut it down, got the kids loaded back up in the warm truck and loaded the tree up and headed home. We didn't get to decorate it until later that night because we ended up going to Adam's parents and helping them get their decorations out and went out to eat. Buck was sooo funny to watch discover the tree and Lyla is a great tree decorator!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
