I decided that this year, we were going to cut down our tree. So we looked up tree farm nearby and headed on over to see if we could find our perfect tree. This tree farm was pretty picked over so Joel used his phone to find us a new one. We figured we might have more luck at the Carnation Tree Farm because it was located in Carnation.
This farm was huge! It was so big they handed out maps with the saws, which was nice because it told us which trees grew in which field. It probably took me 45 minutes, but I finally decided on the perfect tree for our living room. In no time, Joel had the tree cut down and Julie helped him carry our tree to the shake-and-net station. While waiting for the tree to be bundled up for the drive home, I noticed they had fresh mistletoe, which I quickly purchased. Nothing says Christmas like kissing under the mistletoe!
