Deck The Halls


Saturday we decided to go to a tree farm and pick our own tree out.  It was something we had never done as a family before and a tradition I really wanted to start.  We searched online through the Pick Your Own website and came across Werkmeister's Christmas Tree Farm in Bullitt County. It was a little bit of a drive for us, but a scenic one. Once we got there we wandered around a little, took some photographs and finally after much debate and the constant reminder from me to "remember how big our space is" we decided on a tree.  We loaded our pretty tree up and took her home to get all dolled up.  A few hours later and a few arguments about lights later, we had a lovely family tree gracing our dining room.  I hope we can make this a regular outing every year.  Getting a really fresh tree is way better than one that has been sitting around the home store.  Anyway, on to the pictures!

The drive

Listening to some favorite Christmas albums on the way.
Hanging out with all of my favorite littles.
This is how you claim a tree!
The farm.
All packed up and heading home.  
Home, and loaded up with all of our sentimental and handmade ornaments.
And just because, this is my "fancy" tree.  This is the artificial one that I decorate every year.
By the way Saturday was "Small Business Saturday", I did my part buying from a local farm.  Did you shop locally?

  2. It's one of my favorites. I assume it's still available, I bought it at Target last year.
