Christmas Tree Farm
For the past three years, Adam and I have made a tradition of going to a Christmas tree farm and cutting down our tree. We have loved doing it, and this year we got to bring Ollie for his first time! We all got bundled up, and headed to a cute little tree farm north of our home in Milwaukee. Of course I couldn't resist plopping Ollie in the rows of trees and snapping some pictures!
The farm was pretty sparse this year and there weren't a ton of trees to pick from. I swore we'd never get a blue spruce again after making that mistake a couple of years ago (they're so pretty but equally as mean and aggressive with their pokey, knife-like needles!), but they were the only ones that were full enough to bring home! So we cut it down, and I spend three days stringing wayyyyy too many Christmas lights in my full body armor complete with yellow kitchen gloves! I swear, next year we're definitely opting for a softer tree even if it's totally barren!
All in all it was such a great day and we loved taking Ollie to his first Christmas tree farm!
