It was a balmy fall afternoon. The perfect weather to cut down our very first Christmas tree at H&Z tree farm. We spent hours tromping around the property in search of our tree. There was a variety of firs, but we chose the one that smelled the best, which turned out to be a Fraser Fir.
Once found, Josh started the initial cut.
But I got to finish it! He also humored me with matching hats!
Once home we decorated with lights, glittered pinecones, candy canes, a pom pom garland and homemade paper ornaments. I set everything up on an automated timer, so I can come home to a lit tree. The scent fills the room and I like having a touch of Christmas tradition to cheer us through the darkening days.
