Christmas tree, Christmas tree. Where can you be?

On Saturday we packed up the car and drove to the Christmas tree farm to hunt for a tree — hands down my favorite Christmas activity, since as a kid we always hit a lot.

(Clearly. Can you feel the excitement up there?)

And even though we were just a tiny bit early for the snow (now the ground is covered!) I think we might’ve just found our best tree yet…

… that hill is so much bigger than it looks.

I swear.

    what adorable family photos! picking the perfect Christmas tree is such a fun family tradition, I just love it. I really like the photo of the tree being pulled away, it’s a great shot.

    I love this Christmas activity too. We haven’t done it for a few years due to living in an apartment but as soon as we have a house, I’ll definitely be re-introducing this Christmas tradition 🙂 xx

    I’m so sad Eric and I won’t be able to find our own Christmas tree this holiday season since we’ll be traveling. I’m living vicariously through these pictures! You are adorable 🙂
