Oh, Christmas Tree!





Last week we went to an evergreen farm to cut down our own Christmas tree for the first time! It was a fun experience going with friends and our three little boys. Yes, it was windy and cold but we didn't waste time picking out the perfect short, fat Fraser fir tree for our house. After the tree was cut, we loaded it on top of the van and headed into the warm decorated barn for hot chocolate and good food. We finished our afternoon by visiting and petting some cute barn animals. I loved this place and the memories we made here. I  think we'll make it a yearly tradition.




















Instead of a tree skirt, we decided to go with a vintage feel and put the tree inside of our antique galvanized tub. I love our little tree and this time of year! Looking forward to sharing the rest of my decorated house for a Christmas tour coming soon...
Thanks for visiting ReMadeSimple!
