Since we are going to NC for Thanksgiving this year, and since this is a year where the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is the shortest, we wanted to be prepared to start the Christmas festivities as soon as we get home from NC. So we decided to cut our tree this weekend!
The past two years we got our tree from Ellms Family Farm (the same awesome fall-activity-farm), but their trees are expensive, and we knew MiniM.E. would have a fit if she saw the farm and realized all the fun fall things were closed. Instead, we tried Bob's Trees. They actually have a much larger selection, and despite the cold, we found our tree and had a good time. (They even have reindeer!!)
Then today we went to a playgroup family "Early Thanksgiving".
