Christmas Tree Farm


I have always had artificial Christmas trees, so much easier to store and break back out yearly. We have however had one real tree when my son was a baby, I loved the smell of a real tree. This year we decided to do a real tree and the first that my son will be able to remember. I didn't just want any ole' tree, so we found a you cut it tree farm here in Colorado. Was only a hours drive and was totally different that you would think it looks like, not fairytale'ish at all . Out in the middle of no where, trees spread far apart, growing in the wild. A lot had two trees growing into one, so it wasn't a easy task finding one that would due for us. Lots of wandering and walking around, in freezing temps. Was very cold and windy, our eyes were watering and running down our faces. But it was worth it, we found one that worked for us. 6 foot with lots of bare spots {kind of a Charlie Brown tree}. We used a saw and cut it down and tied it to the top of my 4 door sedan car. It made it home safe and its all decorated and ready to go. Would I do it again? Maybe. I think people should do it at least once in their life

  1. Your Christmas tree is beautiful!
    It's been a really long time since I've been to a Christmas Tree Farm. I really should take the kids to experience it.

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. Your son looks like he really enjoyed cutting down his own Christmas tree! The tree looks beautiful!
    Few years ago, my family and I traveled a few hours away to cut down our own tree, we walked around in the tree farm in the freezing cold too to find the right tree... Unfortunately for us, we ended up getting our tree in the market near our home, at least we had the experience! Have a great week!
