Growing up I remember heading out to find our tree. Being bundled up, munching on a candy cane, getting dirty and sappy and probably fighting for a few hours over what tree was perfect. My parents lugged five kids to find a tree. Talk about differing opinions and now being a parent I'm sure their memories consist of breaking out in a sweat and clammy hands. For us kids though it's those memories we hold on to and what I want to recreate for my kids. Being in Florida I never thought I'd be able to actually cut down a tree. We have gotten real trees but you're going to a parking lot and paying a huge amount of money for a tree. Then you have the fake ones. Not my cup of tea but what we've done for a few years. This year I found a place where you can cut down a Florida Christmas Tree and it was only ONE HOUR AWAY!! I mean wow! So this year we actually started our family tradition and were able to cut down a tree! We will totally go back to do it next year! It was a great time to spend as a family and there weren't too many opinions to deal with so it made it pretty easy!
