We've been going to this tree farm for a few years now. It's always fun. We get on the hayride, have hot chocolate and have popcorn after we pick our tree. This year I picked a 9 foot tree. It was about 6 inches too long. Ben had to cut some off the bottom. It's beautiful though.
Here's the tree in all it's glory with a few handmade ornaments. We don't have lights on it yet so we won't put ornaments. Usually, we put purple lights for Advent and then right before Christmas (the 23rd), place our white lights and ornaments. However, with Ben leaving soon, the kids begged for ornaments early. Of course, I relented.
