I am sharing one of our family traditions today. Every year my dad cuts down our Christmas tree. We live in the middle of nowhere in Illinois, so he goes out into the woods to find our tree. (kind of like Chevy Chase on Christmas vacation.)
My dad always comes up with a classic. One year he cut the top off of a huge tree and the next year he used the bottom. Our family is known for having the best “Charlie Brown” trees. I think the goal is to get the most hideous tree possible. We all love it though! Our tree is never lacking character, that is for sure!
This year Josh got in on the action. My dad let him do the honors and chop down the tree. The tree was missing branches on the back side, but it didn’t matter. We stuck it in the corner. It looked perfect!!! Everyone was surprised it had so many branches:) We picked out a winner this year!
We had a big dinner last night and will be with spending time with the family today. We are hoping to see Marley and Me too! Should be a great Christmas! Happy Holidays to all!
