Oh Christmas Tree!

This past weekend we were able to cut down a Christmas tree. We went to a u-cut tree farm this year, that was a first for us. As we were walking up and down the rows of trees, we quickly learned that it wasn't going to be easy to find a tree we liked. The drought in Oregon has caused the trees to grow somewhat differently-- in a bad way.

After scouring all of the different fields, we found our tree. We went in with the intention of getting a Noble Fir and came away with a very pretty Nordmann Fir.

I'm almost as tall as the tree.

Chop, chop, timber!

We spent most of the day cleaning the house, trimming our tree and decorating for Christmas. We are so excited for the holidays!

The final product. Beauty!
