Story. Christmas Tree Farm.

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.  In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.  ~Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas

It's become an annual tradition that we cut down our own Christmas tree every year from a local tree farm.  I did this as a kid growing up, so we started the same tradition for my family.  It's not always an easy thing to do with two young boys, but we give it our best shot! 


So on Thanksgiving weekend we visted Hensler Tree Farm to get our Christmas tree.  It was a super windy day and the threat of rain was always near, but also unusually balmy for this time of year (close to 60 degrees!).

We rode the wagon out to the fields, walked up and down the isles of many trees, and finally settled on one that Logan spied.  He helped Papi cut it down - sometimes Deklen helped too. 

Then we loaded it unto the cart and headed back to our pickup spot to get it wrapped and measured.

Then it was off to visit Santa, and grab some hot cocoa and some munchies before heading back home.  We look forward to coming back next year!

Our tree in all its glory!

Pin It!
