365 Photo Project :: day 276 november 24

The Bates Annual Christmas Tree Hunt  ::

It's tradition in our family to cut down a tree the weekend of Thanksgiving.  In the morning I put on a crock-pot of chili and we all bundle up with excitement.   

This year we set out to find the least expensive tree.  Where do you go for a good deal...craigslist. My husband announced, "here is a farm advertising any size Noble tree for $5"...perfect!  

Micah (my husbands brother) and his wife Johannah, who recently moved to Portland joined us this year which added to the fun.  The day was full of adventure and we found a lovely tree.  The owners of the farm also gifted us a trunk full of boughs and holly.  My heart was ready to burst with delight.  Abigail declared today her favorite day of the year!
