Find that Perfect Christmas Tree and Visit a Local Tree Farm!

Christmas Tree Farm 

One of my favorite family activities at Christmas is to search for the "perfect" Christmas tree. Well our version of perfect, every year its fun to decide which one we like the best, and using a saw they provide we cut it down to bring home. The smell is amazing and we take a little pride enjoying it when its up as we got to pick the tree. Love it! Here are some great local Christmas Tree Farms, be sure to check one out and start your own tradition!
