Trip to the Christmas Tree Farm...Day 335

We made our second annual trip to the Christmas Tree farm for our Christmas tree this weekend! This is one of my very favorite outings! I know we could buy a tree at Home Depot or Wal-Mart for less, but the experience of picking out a tree and cutting it down is just so special...along with strapping it to the top of your car! Sweet memories!

We got to the farm just in time to watch the {super cute} pig races!
