Ok, it wasn't like you see in the movies....chopping down the family Christmas tree. It was a busy weekend, but we were determined to make it a relaxing and fun new tradition! In order to have a more relaxed time, we bumped it to Sunday afternoon. Saturday was sunny and crisp, but we would have been really rushed. Sunday started with a few beautiful snow flurries on our way to church. After church the flurries seemed to be mixing with rain. After lunch it appeared to have turned all the way to rain. We didn't let it stop us! Even though we did not head south to the farm recommended by friends, we still found a wonderful family owned farm, and we had a fabulous time walking the field selecting the perfect tree (ok, we could drive right out in to the field...but we still walked around). The rain even let up for a few minutes during the search. Many of the beautiful trees had remnants of the morning flurries hidden in their needles. It wasn't like the movies, a couple of feet of newly fallen snow...it was wet and muddy but we laughed and we made memories. We love our beautiful tree.
