Wow, that place sounds so cute and festive! My parents used to buy a real tree when I was really young and I don’t remember anything like that. SO and I got a real tree this year too, but it was delivered to our house. Maybe next year, I will try to find a farm around here that is like the one you went to!

Our farm is just like this, minus the food. They do give out free hot chocolate and candy canes though. They sell marshmellows for roasting at their firepit. Hay rides too. Much fun, 2nd year going there, will go back every year!

Yep, we go to a place like that. But they have llamas, goats and sheep. And the wagon is pulled by a tractor and there is hot cocoa afterwards.

Oh man, that sounds awesome! We don’t have any tree farms around here (plenty of cactus farms though). There is a family from Oregon who have one, and they drive down here every December and set up shop on an empty lot. No hot chocolate, no carriages… way more boring than your trip!

When I was younger we used to go to the mountains to cut our trees.  We would take a food, hot chocolate, sleds and get all bundled up and spend the day looking for the perfect tree.  Then we got some land so we went there to cut our trees which was just as awesome.  Once sister and I hit highschool life got busy so we just buy our trees from Lowes now 🙁 But we always get real never fake!  I think next year FI and I are going to start trying to go cut our trees again, I really loved the experience.

I had no idea tree cutting was this big of a deal!  You learn something new every day, I suppose.

We pack up everyone in the truck with hot chocolate and a couple of axes and head out into crown land, trudge through the actual forest and pick a tree.

Its totally legal cuz it’s crown land and it’s way fun!! This year we got to show my brothers kids what deer prints look like!

Its a family tradition and way too much fun!
