A few Saturdays ago, Matthew and I joined (crashed) the Nances for the hunt for the perfect Christmas Tree. Or…in this case, the hunt for two perfect Christmas Trees. Chip found a Christmas tree farm about 40 minutes away from San Antonio. So we, along with Wrigley, piled in his truck and headed out…about 1 hour before closing time. Luckily, as long as you walk through the fence before it closes, you can stay to find your tree.
The tree farm placed all the Frasier firs right at the entrance. Man, it’s hard to be a beautiful Frasier fir. They just smell like Christmas. But we were going to try. Matthew and Chip were very excited about cutting down a tree. They grabbed their pole and saw and we were off.
I personally like the Charlie Brown trees. They are just so cute! How fun would of of these little guys be? Unfortunately (or fortunately) the trees have to be at least four feet tall before you can cut them down.
Wrigley serenaded us with some Christmas carols while we walked through the farm.
In the end, we both ended up going with Frasier firs. The other trees just didn’t smell like Christmas. I think the guys were a bit disappointed about not being able to cut a tree down. We also each got wreaths for our doors.
When we got back to the Nance’s they treated us to a wonderful meal of Lasagna, salad, and garlic bread. We ate, had cookies for desert, and they introduced us to Duck Dynasty. It was a lovely way to spend the evening.
When we got home, Matthew set up the tree and then we both climbed into bed.
If you’ve seen Clementine and Geoffrey’s holiday card, you know how this tree turned out. If not, stay tuned.
