Wade and I prefer to get our tree before Thanksgiving. Then everything is ready for Christmas when we get home from visiting family. The problem around here is finding a Christmas Tree Farm open before Thanksgiving. We finally gave up this year and decided to wait till today. Of course snow is predicted – in all of our years in Milwaukee we have never gotten a Christmas tree in the snow. It was beautiful, cold, and a little uncomfortable for Wade (who has to lay on the ground to cut the tree).
Then we got home to find our neighbors sledding down our front yard. Of course we immediately joined in!
