our tree tradition

Every year for the past, oh, I don't know, for a good while we have been going to the mountains and cutting our Christmas tree.  I really do look forward to it.

Just us driving through the mountains, sometimes snow, searching for the perfect tree.  I have been known to tag a tree or two (put some toilet paper on it so we can come back to it if there's nothing better).

This year was a bit different, the kids stayed home.  Daughter wasn't feeling great and son stayed home with her.  There was a good deal of snow in most of our normal areas.

 We opted to get one on the side of the road instead of driving through/on ice and snow.
It's not the prettiest one we have had, but it comes with a bit of a story and you should smell the smell.  Seriously, it is so nice.  At first it was almost too strong.
