We went and picked out our Christmas tree today. In the past we have stayed fairly close to home in search of the perfect tree. The past 2 years we have wound up picking a pre-cut tree because of the lack of suitable trees. A friend, who went for their family tree yesterday suggested that we go to Sheerlund Forests. I saw her pictures on facebook and thought that this place looked amazing. It was about 30 minutes drive from our house and boy was it well worth it. There were acres upon acres of trees to choose from. They took you out on a wagon and dropped you off in different areas. We were in search of a Blue Spruce and that was the farthest drop off location. It was so cold and windy on top of the hill, but the kids had a blast looking for the perfect tree. Brennon chose our, and although it's not as tall and round as we normally get...it is perfect for our house and the corner we put the tree in. After we cut down the tree, we went and got cookies and hot apple cider. Noah sat on Santa's lap (with Daddy) and Brennon didn't want to sit with them (I think he was a little scared). When we got in the car I asked him why he didn't sit with Santa and he replied, "That wasn't the real one anyway!!!" There was also a huge ornament barn and I was so temped to get more ornaments to put on the presents I wrap for others, but I refrained. Anyway, hope you enjoy our pictures of our tree shopping adventure.
