Oh, Christmas Tree

As I mentioned yesterday, we spent Saturday hunting and chopping down our Christmas tree.  We purchased a special permit to go up a mountain to find the perfect tree.  We LOVED the experience!  It's so fun to hike around in the snow with so many different types of trees to choose from.  Once we finally found "the one", we chopped it down and pulled it back to the car.  I can't wait until Rilo has a say in the perfect tree!



Here it is!  This was our pick.


Okay, so Adam may have cheated a little and used his gas powered pruner.


Don't worry, the sparse spot is hidden in the corner.



And Nicole, Dane and Dash found their perfect tree too!


And a few cute ones of their family.





Thanks to Nicole for taking some pictures of us on my camera!

Are you a real or artificial tree kind of person?  We always had a real tree growing up and I don't know if I can switch to a fake one.  I know it's easier, but I love the whole process of getting a real tree!

How much fun! I did that with my boyfriend's family last year. Growing up, my mom was allergic to real Christmas trees so we always had a fake one. Now that I'm on my own I can't wait to get a real one. Hopefully this week! Love your family :)

Love this!! I've never seen anyone look so stylish during a tree chopping adventure.
P.S. Do you happen to know where your friend got her boots?! I've been searching for a pair like that so I don't die when I walk in all these crazy blizzards!

Hi Brissa. Nicole said the brand is Sorel and you can get them at J.Crew or Nordstrom!

Ok Bri...seriously, you guys are the cutest little family. And at first I thought those were your boots, but then I scrolled down and saw they were your friends. So stylish you guys are! Makes me want to go pick out our own tree too! xoxo
