finding our Christmas tree

It's tradition for my dad and I to go cut down our own Christmas year (here was last year's!), and this year was no exception.  It was a chilly day, but the sun was shining, and we were happy to wander around a local Christmas tree farm until we found the perfect one.

(Apparently this is my Christmas tree picking outfit....and please ignore my mismatched mitts.)

We picked a nice fat tree, and it looks beautiful in our living room.  I'm kind of in love with it.  Nothing beats the smell of a real tree!
