One of my favorite traditions we started years ago was going to the mountains and chopping down our own Christmas Tree the day after Thanksgiving. I practically count down the days until we can get our tree every year, and seeing as Thanksgiving was late this year – it felt like I had to wait forever!
We’ve already had a few snow storms so the roads were packed with snow as we drove the windy roads up the mountain. This was one of those days I was thankful for a husband who can navigate crazy roads/weather and a 4 wheel drive truck 😉
The last few years we’ve gone to get our tree it’s been on sunny days, so hunting for our tree in a snowstorm was definitely a change for us. It did make it fun to get out and walk around in the snow, and then let our toddler “try” to walk in it because it came up to his waist! While the snow slowed things down a bit, we were still able to find the perfect tree!
It’s always a fun time getting outside and getting the Christmas season started for us. I love making memories that our kids get excited about too. By the time we got home at the end of the day, we were wet and tired – but still had the best time decorating our tree as we watched Christmas movies.
Getting our tree is definitely one of my favorite things about Christmas! What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
