The annual tree cut

Seriously.. I hope you all have a tree farm close to you that you can experience cutting down your own Christmas tree just once. It is SO fun. This year we went the day before Thanksgiving and I think it's going to be a new tradition. We had our tree home, lit and decorated before Thanksgiving Day. Of course I took some pictures for you to see the big outing.

Found the "one". And Darin didn't even cut himself with the saw this year! It's been a yearly tradition since we met and started getting our tree together 4 years ago. 4 years, only 3 band-aids... way to go, Babe!

And lil miss Adie looking at the airplane instead of daddy behind the camera. =)

And I love this picture.. my hubby not letting me carry anything cuz I'm with child so he carried our baby and the tree himself. What a sweetheart. =)

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Awesome post! We use to get our own tree but we have now gone to artificial tree! Hopefully some year we'll do that tradition again! I know I loved it when I was a child. We are putting our tree up today as I type!

I am jealous. We aren't doing a tree this year. We are going to be out of town over christmas so it would have to be taken down in two week.

Adie looks adorable and man is your hair getting long.

Such a cool tradition Darce! I plan to start that one for us next year. Sadly, our little townhouse is just too small for us to get a big, real tree. I am settling for my little 3 foot fake one that I put on the coffee table for now. NEXT year...hopefully I'll have a bigger house, a real tree, and be expecting a little one to buy presents for the following Christmas! :)
