Steppin’ Out Saturday: Christmas Tree Hunt

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying your days off and are spending quality time with family and friends. We had a great Thanksgiving with BJ’s family. We had some of the best turkey we’ve ever eaten and my pumpkin pie contribution turned out to be the best pie I’ve baked so far.

This weekend we set out to our favorite tree farm, Alpine Meadows, to hunt for our Christmas tree. I highly recommend getting your tree from a tree farm. Cutting down your own Christmas tree is so much more gratifying than going to a fenced in parking lot, pointing at a tree and bringing it home. Plus, your tree is so much fresher and hasn’t spent days wrapped up. Anyway…

This is a fun little family tradition for us. It was a beautiful day outside, so that made it even better. First we stopped for some holiday beverages. Eggnog latte for him and Peppermint Mocha (Christmas in a cup) for her.

It’s very rare that you need your sunglasses on a November morning in Washington. 🙂

Hunting for a tree

This is the one that came home with us.

The truck BJ is driving right now only has 2 seats. Good thing my Honda could step in and haul our tree home.

On the way home we always stop by this crazy store and get some fancy cheeses and smoked meats. This store has a little bit of everything, just take a look at the sign out front.

For those of you who were wondering…Fall is officially out of my system and Christmas is here! Stay tuned for a post on this year’s Christmas decor!
