We got our tree back on Thanksgiving weekend. We went to a local tree farm that Sunday and found our tree. No, we don't cut it down ourselves, although that is an option there. We just look through the pre-cut ones and find a "winner"! I think we looked at about 4 trees this year and found ours.
Of course as soon as we got it home, the kids wanted to decorate it. That night, we put the lights on and had them add a few ornaments to it. This was the first time for Cassandra and she was loving it!
