Today, we went to the Dogwood Christmas Tree Farm to cut down our Christmas tree! This is an annual tradition with my family – one that we look forward to each year.
We picked the tallest and bushiest tree!
The rain couldn’t stop us from picking out our perfect tree! In fact, it made puddles, which my Hunter boots and I just couldn’t resist jumping in!
I tried to assist in sawing down the tree, but my hood kept getting in the way and I couldn’t find the trunk…
So my job transformed into holding the tree… Which didn’t last long.
Let’s have Lauren hold the tree that we cut upright while we take a nice photo. *Cue Lauren dropping the tree*. Tomorrow’s going to be an arm day at the gym.
Oh well, it made for good photos. So can we say I meant to drop it?
Shout out to my madre who was the amazing photographer and videographer throughout the tree sawing process. She captured all the right moments! Also notice I am holding the tree… I told you I meant for it to fall!
Up on the SUV! We counted 37 trees on vehicles today. 38 including ours! And of course my mom and I stressed the entire ride home that it was going to fall off… I should never question my dad’s intricate tree-tying.
A trip to Fort Langley for the Christmas tree is never complete without lunch at Wendel’s. We all warmed up inside with our favourite French onion soup! And for dessert, a coconut nanaimo bar!
The tree’s drying out tonight in the garage, but our stockings are up and the decorations are ready for tomorrow!
