Christmas Tree Hunting at The Family Farm

On November 30th, we headed to Graham to try out a new christmas tree farm, The Family Farm. We decided to give them a try after many years of going to Hunter's Tree Farm because they are a non-profit, family-run farm who give all their proceeds to feed the hungry here and around the world. We went with our friends, the Norquists, and loved it! The first thing we did was check out the Cow Barn. It's a barn filled with cute cows that you can feed and a super fast, tube slide with hay bales as steps.

After our fun in the barn we headed over to the tractor-pulled wagon that took us for a sweet short ride over to the Christmas trees while we sang Jingle Bells. After a group shot, the kids took off in all directions on the search for the perfect tree. I don't even think they look for a tree. I think they just love to run around and hide and chase each other.

Berg is so in love with this little girl. I love it.

Handsome Jasper poses by our "perfect tree"! Yes, we found it! Mwaaa Haa Haa Haa! 

Everyone gets a turn "helping" Dada chop it down... and getting muddy, because the tree does grow in dirt and we live in Washington where it is always wet. Ahh, fun, dirty, memory moments. 

Our family pic with the "perfect tree" which the Family Farm guys lovingly unloaded from the wagon so we could get our traditional picture. They were so nice! They even took our pictures, let the kids "ride" on the tractors and gave us free hot cocoa, coffee and doughnuts while they shook the needles off, and bound it up. It was a great morning!

We'll definitely go back again next year! If anyone wants to get a great tree and give to the needy at the same time here's the info:
