Visit a Tree Sale or Farm

Even though we put up an artificial tree or two – okay maybe it’s more like three or four – going to visit a tree farm is always fun.  We may not come home with a tree but I can’t say that we leave empty handed, as we often buy evergreen roping to decorate the house.  No matter what the outcome, it is always neat to look through the trees and decide which one we would pick if we were choosing.  What have I learned?  Well, I prefer the short and round where as both of my boys prefer tall trees – who would have guessed?  While at the tree farm, we sometimes get to enjoy other activities as well.  Hot chocolate, live reindeer, and a visit from the big guy from up north are common occurrences at farms around us.   Get out and enjoy the crisp air before it gets too bitter.
