We got our tree!

We headed up to the hills today to cut down our tree. We talked...I think we have done it every year except the first 3 we were married. Our first xmas...Emma's first xmas...and then the next one we lived with my parents. So....I think we officially have a family tradition going! Every year....we go up to the mountains...national forest and cut down our tree. 4x4 required...or chains. We hike around, find a tree....cut er down & bring it home. They're always lacking in the fullness department...but always full of love & charm! I have always watched Charlie Brown Christmas stuff....and Emma has. Carson..he doesn't care. But this week when we watched it...both kids came to the realization and understanding of WHY we call our trees CHARLIE BROWN trees! But...just like on the show...our tree fills with love, charm, spirit and becomes GORGEOUS! I need to take a pix of it decorated...but you can see it in the woods!

You should see our tree this year - we needed a real skinny one to fit into our little living room, and that is exactly what we found. It is always fun picking a new one out every year though. I can't stand the fake tree stuff.
