The Christmas Tree hunt

One tradition we decided to start when we got married is that we get our live Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving - that way we can enjoy the Christmas "feeling" for a good month. So today we fired up the 97 Chevy (Dustin's dad's truck that we have been babysitting here in Utah) and headed up to Farr West, Utah. Why the 60 mile drive you say? Believe it or not - that is the only place online we could find that has live Christmas trees you can cut down. This family owns some land and they grow them so people can cut them down for Christmas. We went to the same place last year and thought the selection of trees and price was very reasonable. Believe it or not - the taller the tree the cheaper it of course we had to go for the cheapest and get something at least 10 feet tall!

Zach and Dustin ready the hunt for our perfect Christmas tree!

You can see how serious of an event this was....
