Nutbrown's Tree Farm

I finally got around to uploading the pictures from our trip to the tree farm on Saturday 12/1.  It was a great way to start off the month of December and the weather was perfect!  It was cold but not freezing and sunny and dry.  We had a blast and are definitely going to come back to this spot.  It was beautiful!  Here's some pictures from our escapades: 


Us, saw in hand, embarking on the journey of finding a Christmas tree...

There were rows and rows and acres of trees---so many to choose from! 

We pitied this little tree and thought of Charlie Brown....we were tempted to get it, but decided not to.

So we searched all over until we found the perfect one for us.  We kept finding "ok" ones and "not bad" trees....but then we found this one!  Peter cut off some of the bottom to even it out, but other than that it was good as is.  

We thought it'd take longer to cut it down so I was going to wait to begin taking a video and in like two seconds Peter was halfway through it so I was like "Wait!"  See for yourself how fast it went:

Now for the hard part....getting it out of the farm haha.

Trying to maneuver our tree through the massive sea of other trees without damaging it...

Right before we left, we snapped a picture with the sign to prove we were there :P


All in all, Saturday was a great fun day and a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.  We also picked up our new microwave that day which was great because we really missed the convenience of it.  I'll tell ya-you don't realize how much you use something til you can't anymore haha.  After getting our tree, Peter voiced his idea of putting up icicle lights this year, which I thought was fabulous so we went out looking for lights and we were successful!  We also got the materials I used to make swags that day.  We came home and put up some of the outside decorations just as it was getting dark.   Now that everything is tied down and holding, it's great!  I can't believe it's only a lil over 2 weeks til Christmas!
