This past weekend we made a day of seeking out and cutting down our Christmas tree. We wanted to head north, but weren’t sure exactly where to go. Thanks to social media and a photo post to Facebook we decided to check out Holmes Tree Farm in Kennebunk, Maine after we saw that friends had gone there too.
Our drive only took about an hour and a half. Lily wasn’t too keen on a road trip at the beginning, but she soon fell asleep for a much needed nap. Once we got there the girls were anxious to find the perfect tree. Abigail pretty much chose the first tree she saw-which wasn’t even in the “cut-your-own-tree field”. Needless to say she was on a mission.
After wandering through trees of different shapes and sizes we settled on one. Jonathan cut it down with ease strapped it to the van with Grandma.
The girls had fun decorating our tree. After making a few adjustments (mainly moving copious amounts of ornaments from the bottom of the tree and spreading it throughout the top) Jonathan topped off our tree with a new homemade angel topper and I wrapped our new tree skirt around it (both courtesy of Grandma).
