Solstice Tree

I love the stillness of the woods in the Wintertime.
We got our tree yesterday. The kids were so excited! We bundled up in coats and hats and gloves, and walked into the woods behind our house. Rain threatened, but we only got a few drops. After a long walk and much debate over which tree would be best, Tim found a small cedar. All of the kids agreed that it was the most lovely one. They all wanted to help with dragging the tree home, so Tim cut some of the small bottom branches off & gave each a branch to carry.Tim challenged me and Nova to pull the tree over the bridge. It was heavy!!!!!!! But we did it!We have been decorating ever since!

I've ALWAYS wanted to go out in the woods and cut a tree-just once. I would love to experience that around our home. We have plenty to choose from!
