in the montgomery family, we have one tradition that kicks off our holiday season; each year, we head to the tree farm to cut down our own christmas tree. there’s really something magical about the experience. as we slowly rumble in a tractor toward the fields of christmas trees, the kids drink hot chocolate atop a haystack and squeal with delight. there is always some debate as to the tree we pick, but we always end up finding “the one.” after the perfect tree has been selected, the kids cheer as my husband saws it down. here’s to another year of continuing our favorite tradition together; let the christmas carols begin!
