Eric, Audrey, Ethan and my mother in law (Nannie Wizza) on the hunt
Every year we head to Piper Mt. to get our Christmas Tree. We've been doing this for 9 years now and most likely will be doing for the next 9 (at times I do dream of a fake tree......the easiness of it). We go on the first Sunday of December but this year we had to go on Saturday since Ethan had his first basketball game on Sunday (this was very unusual). The weather wasn't the most ideal.....it was a wet misty day, which meant mud. We still had fun trying to find our perfect tree!
Ethan really wanted to cut the tree down, he wasn't strong enough but he tried. He was happy to help carry it down to the farm, which was quite a walk. Miss Trix of course went with us, she is so good. She listens and stays near us, we seldom put a collar and leash on her. It's funny because she is often referred to as a pup when she's almost 14!
After the tree is cut we head into the tree shop for hot cider and fresh donuts.....so yummy! The kids each pick out an ornament, we certainly don't need anymore but it' has now become a tradition. Ethan spotted the Red Sox ornaments from a mile away and picked on out and Audrey found a cute little mouse. She loves small creatures.
Piper Mt. also makes and sells Maine wreaths that are sent all of the states.
Another great year for getting a tree. I'm thankful we've started this tradition, the kids love it so much. I know they will want to carry this tradition on for a long, long, time.
