Christmas Tree Hunt

This year was a family first. We decided to cut our own tree. We found a place just north of Pasco that lets you do this. It was a lot harder finding a good tree than I think we all anticipated. In the end Kaden chose which tree we should bring home and I think he did a great job.

We had to go later in the evening and it was really dark, but Kaden and Brynnlee both loved shining their flashlights all around. When it was all said and done I asked Kaden if he had fun. He said, "Yeah, but next year let's just go to Fred Meyer."

"I think we should get this one."

Jeremy with the saw.

Little helpers make the job more fun.

Two trees CAN fit up there.

Looks like a barrel of fun. I bet your kids had the best time. I remember only doing this once or twice with my family growing up, but my brothers and I thought it was the greatest experience.

That's really cool Heather. Your tree looks great. Although I love Kaden's comment. He is such a funny kid!

Awesome! We did that last year, it was SO much fun. But we were in Island Park, ID where there was about waist deep snow. And all we had were jeans and hiking boots. So that part wasn't all that great. LOL. We wanted to do it again this year, but timing just wasn't working we went to Fred Meyer's! :)

I'm too lazy to do that. I'm all about the fake trees.

That is fun. When I was a kid, we often went to a tree farm where you cut your own Christmas tree. Once my dad drove the Voyager over a stump and got highcentered! Good times.

We often went to our property in the Uinta mountains to cut our own tree. Fun times. Now I'm all about the fake tree. I have no idea what you do with a real tree after you are done with it here in LA.

HAHAHA! The owners were telling me how funny they thought it was when people came after dark to cut down the trees, you crazy kids! Just think of the memories you made though, your kids will never forget it!
