The Christmas Tree is Up

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is our family’s traditional “Go Get the Tree” day.  We love having a real tree.  Believe it or not, but driving 30 minutes with the family to a tree farm, walking around, picking out our tree, and getting it up in the tree stand is a lot less work than dealing with a fake looking tree that never goes together the way I think it should.  I’d rather get mad at my family (that I love dearly) trying to find the perfect tree than a fake tree I’d rather throw in the wood burner.  No matter what happens on the trip to the tree farm, it always ends up better than it started.
