This year I said we should actually cut down our own tree. It seems they are usually cheaper this way too.
When we arrived and saw that they were $35 I recollected that we may have actually spent less the year before.
It actually seemed tougher to make a decision.
We basically walked around for a while until we could pick the right one.
Meadow enjoyed touching all the mini trees.
She didn't enjoy standing up in her snow pants.
Then we finally decided on one.
I cut off some stragglers and brought it to the car, strapped it down and went back to Minneapolis.
On the weekends they have Santa and animals and crafts. If we do this again next year we will have to come on the weekend to make it more worth the drive.
We each decorated a tree. Well, Brooke decorated Meadow's red wonder.
Next year she's on her own.
Another tree forest.
Meadow was so excited for our tree forest that she ran around with sunglasses, a diaper and socks.
