A Trip to the Christmas Tree farm

On December 1st, Cameron, London and I piled into the car and drove 15 minutes up to Davis Ranch off HWY 16. Besides being a provider of fresh produce, the farm has Christmas trees. For $35 you can drive out, pick and cut any tree of your choice. After going to Lowe's last year and paying $30 for a tree under 5 feet tall, $35 for any size seems very reasonable. With our tall ceilings we can get a 7-8 footer if we like. Plus, fresh cut trees last longer. We found the tree just driving in the car, though we did walk around a little just to confirm it was the right tree for us. Cameron made quick work chopping the tree down, and after a stop at the bagging station we took our tree home. It took a few days to get it decorated, but it sure is a beauty and is still sucking up water like a champ. Here are some pictures of our adventures and the final product:
