We get our Christmas trees from a National Forest that's about 1.5 hours away from our house. We purchase permits for $10 a pop, and by cutting our trees we're helping to thin the forest. It's a family tradition my in-laws started many years ago.
Here are scenes from our tree hunting expedition. We got a tree for my in-laws and a tree for my house. Since my husband wasn't able to join us, I cut our tree. And then the chain fell off the chainsaw. Oops.
