tree time










On Saturday we woke up at the crack of dawn and drove down to Pikes Peak National Forest to cut ourselves a Christmas tree. We had so much fun! The kids loved playing in the snow. We really liked hiking out to where there were no footprints and cutting down our own tree. We carried it back to the car piled in and had hot chocolate. We will never buy a tree from the store again.

Oh what fun! We did the same here. I really think it is something they will remember forever!

How lovely to go and choose and harvest your own tree. I'm sure this memory will stay with your children always.
