Who loves getting fresh-cut trees for Christmas? Last year at Alpine Lake was the first time in my adult life that. I’ve had a live tree and it was absolutely amazing! It smelled divine and it was prefect in every way. This year we set out for Mountain Top Tree Farm again to find the perfect tree but found them closed when we arrived. I remembered going to Woodlake Tree Farm in the fall of 2017 during the Autumn Glory Festival so we decided to give them a try. The Farm was decorated beautifully!

Alastair and Atticus were in awe of the lights and beauty and we had a marvelous (and cold!) time searching for “the one”.

Atticus enjoyed snacking on snow and then “driving” Daddy’s truck around the farm.

I wrapped the tree in lights and a Royal Stewart patterned ribbon that evening so we could decorate it the following day. Have you ever noticed how children decorate trees? There is no such thing as scattering the ornaments and keeping the tree balanced. My kids tend to sort all the like ornaments together and load down the lower branches until they nearly touch the floor. i may have gone back and done a bit of redecorating once they finished.
