This year was the first year we cut our own tree. We went with some friends to a lot in the Santa Cruz mountains.
Family ready to go tree hunting!
Trees as far as the eye can see
I spy something with a dino shirt
We think this is the one!
It is the one!
When you chop it down, you leave the bottom branches and it grows back. I didn't know this - really neat!
Back at home, we finished up the decorations. It's a forest scene this year in the front. LT asked for the deer with the moving heads. The candycanes were his wish a couple years back. By the time he goes to college, every inch of the yard may be covered. I love the way it looks!
