This weekend we drove out to our favorite farm and frolicked in the beautiful snow until we found the absolute perfect tree. It was like a scene out of a movie or postcard.
Just kidding, we went to Lowes. ;)
We got a Frasier fir, actually the first one we looked at! We did a fake tree our first two Christmases and while growing up. We tried out a real tree last year and loved it. The smell is way worth the mess!
Gotta love the use of pallets!
On our way home from picking up the tree we stopped at a home 5 minutes near our home that has a huge light show at their house! You turn the radio to a certain station and the lights dance to the music.
We parked the car, unbuckled the kids, had some snacks, and enjoyed the show for over an hour! I thought Christmas lights were fun, but they were so much more fun hearing the enthusiastic shrieks of my kids. “THOSE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ARE DANCING!!!” (insert giggling) “I SEE PINK LIGHTS!!!!”
Do you use a real tree or a fake one?
Do you have any light displays near your house?
