For the past few Christmas’ my family has gone out to the back of our property to find a christmas tree. We used to go to a christmas tree farm every year to buy a tree, but they were always too thick (and Dad was never satisfied with the price). One year Dad figured he could find a better tree on our own property and after a bit of searching he did. Albeit it was a little Charlie Brownish, to me it was a lot nicer than any tree you could buy… and we just pushed the sparse side into the corner. From then on we’ve made it a tradition to go out and look for a christmas tree together as a family.
Here are some photos I took while out looking for christmas trees the weekend before last. We ended up with 4 trees, one each for Ellen and Justin, for Mitchell and Stephanie, for our friend Jeanie Rooney and for home.
