This past weekend we went to a local tree lot to select our perfect Christmas tree. I was really excited about the whole experience, especially because I grew up with real Christmas trees and remember so vividly the sweet crisp scent wafting through our home during the holiday season. However, it had been a few years since I'd been able to experience this due to an assortment of restrictions in various living situations. But this year is different and we can have a real tree again!
Here are a few photos of our fun adventure. So glad that Benji gets to celebrate his first ever Christmas with a real tree the way I did as a kid!
We had lots of fun wandering through the lot and getting a feel for all the different varieties that were available to us. Ben, of course, was the main product tester.
Fortunately it wasn't too cold out so we could enjoy some family time together.

Looking forward to celebrating the season with this little guy.
And here she is! Not too big, not too small, not too prickly and a great addition to our home. I think this day will become a tradition in our home from now on.
Let the festivities begin!
