Every year we drive just across the state line into North Carolina and choose our own Christmas tree to be cut down. A few years ago we started dragging my parents along and now it has become a yearly tradition to go on the Friday after Thanksgiving, when everyone else and their grandma are out fighting the crowds for a deal. No thanks! Here are some pictures from the Great Christmas Tree Excursion of 2010. Enjoy!
A moment of silence for the tree...
Standing in front of our tree
There was a little dead tree on the way down the hill and Peter knelt down next to it and told me to take a picture so we could tell everyone that THIS was the tree we picked!
...I think the final result was worth the effort though (and since Peter regained his sanity, it's all good).
