Hi Dear Friends!
One of the wonderful things about having 40 acres of beautifully forested property is being able to go on the “hunt” for the perfect Christmas tree! And that is what Troy and I did while we were at the cabin.
We bundled up in lovely tree hunting gear which means lots of bright hunters orange because it is deer rifle season and the last thing we needed was to be mistaken for a buck and doe out there!
It was snowing and peaceful.
We found the perfect one. Of course it is way to big but, it can be cut down to a perfect size.
My dad came out to assist with the chain saw.
Got this beauty back to the cabin.
Now we have to bundle her up and strap her to our truck.
This Christmas is going to be thrifty, it has to be. But, thrifty does not mean it won’t be wonderful or special. Celebrating the birth of Christ by filling my heart with love, family, friends and making special memories is my focus. It is what I need to keep my spirits high.
Not buying a Christmas tree this year is definitely a money saver (can you believe the insane prices of real trees?!). Spending the afternoon at our cabin, with my husband and dad looking for the perfect tree literally is priceless to me! It was fun, happy and silly. What better way to kick off the holiday season?
Okay, let’s see your thriftiness!!
