The Great Christmas Tree Hunt

2010.12.05 004.christmastreehunt

This year we decided to trade in the artificial tree and start a new tradition of heading out to the country and picking out one of our own. We headed up to Beaver''s Christmas Tree Farm just north of Birmingham to start our hunt. We braved the cold weather and had a great time searching for our tree. Colt also had fun - especially when he got to go on the hayride! While Beaver''s farm had lots of great trees, we didn''t find the one for us there, but we still had a good time. 

The next leg of our Christmas Tree Hunt had taken us 30 miles north of Birmingham. The second leg would take us 30 miles east to the town of Harpersville to another Christmas tree farm. This farm had lots of trees, but unfortunately it was about 30 degrees that day. We did a quick run through of what was available and, it turns out, the kind of tree Mom wants isn''t grown in Alabama. So we snapped a few pics and off we went. On the way home, 0.5 miles from the entrance to our neighborhood, we spotted a tent with "Fresh-Cut North Carolina Firs", and minutes later were tying the tree to the top of the Jeep.

After we got the tree setup to decorate, Colt immediately joined in. The lights weren''t quite his specialty, but he really enjoyed putting the ornaments on the tree. He picked that up completely on his own - he saw Mom & Dad decorating the tree, picked up an ornament, and stuck it on the tree. And then another - and another. Notice in the pics he''s decorating the cluster of ornaments - he wasn''t really about spreading them out! But he had fun and that''s what counts.
