Every year after Christmas I say that I’m going go buy a beautiful pre-lit tree on sale so that we finally have a “nice tree”. But every year I abandon that idea because all of the money has been spent and who wants to spend more on a Christmas tree AFTER Christmas? I regret it a little, but when Thanksgiving comes around I’m so glad that I didn’t go buy a fake tree because we’re able to go hunt for a real one.
For the last four years we’ve headed to a local tree farm to get our tree and it’s such a fun tradition. This year we tried a new one that was a little farther away and boy, was it worth it! This farm was called Pumpkins and Pines and it was just dreamy. Not only was the farm dreamy, but everyone was in a good mood, well rested, and happy! HUGE WIN. It was really busy at the farm that day, but the weather was perfect and all the kids wore what I asked them to wear and we got lots of smiles.
These pics will forever be some of my favorites because of the love, the fun and the tradition they capture. Some days you just catch a break and things go better than you hoped! We all need those days every once and a while right? (Knock on wood. Might have just jinxed tomorrow.)
Do you have a real tree or a fake one? How many trees do you decorate at your house? (I’m still sticking with one at our house. #easy)
