This year we decided to take the boys to an actual tree farm instead of Lowe's to get our living room tree. I know, I know, we have been pathetic, lol. It was fun for the boys. They got popcorn & hot chocolate. We went to the tallest tree that we could see first, but noticed a couple of bare spots & decided to look more. However, we quickly discovered that it was the only 9-10 ft. tree on the plantation. Soooo, needless to say, it was the one that found its way to our home. It was a neat experience and one we plan to continue.
