Cutting the Christmas Tree

One of our favorite family traditions is heading out to cut our Christmas tree. for the second year we headed out to Chamberland Farm. They have such beautiful trees and the owner is a great guy too.

Here Dad and the girls head out to find the perfect tree. Of course this is not a quick or easy process. Everyone seems to have a different idea of what the perfect tree should look like.

Out in the middle of the field looking for that perfect tree. There were so many to choose from. I don't know how you decide. If we had room, I would love to have more than one tree.

Hannah's tree received the thumbs up from everyone. Now it was time to cut it down. Sarah was the holder as Dad sawed. Hannah and Rebekah stood back to yell "Timber!"

Sarah tried to help carry the tree out to the van. I don't think she realized how heavy a 7 foot tree is. As you can see the job fell on Dad's shoulders. It is a good thing Dad has such broad, stronger shoulders.

As Dad was trying the tree to the top of the van the girls and I enjoyed a cup of steaming hot cocoa! A perfect way to end our tree cutting trip!
