Christmas Tree Weekend

Joe was out of town all last week for work. The boys had been begging me for a Christmas tree so the day after Joe got home we took our annual trip to the NC State Farmers Market to pick out our tree. It was freezing and lightly snowing but we had a great time picking out a really tall tree. I think almost every year we buy our tree from Howell Brothers, a Christmas tree farm from Sparta, NC. They always have great deals and wonderful customer service.

The boys really liked this itty bitty tree

I like my trees to be imperfect, I love the crooked and odd shaped trees. Nature is unique and never perfect and that’s what I love about a real Christmas tree.
