treeAs the holidays rapidly approach you may be scouring the Internet (like us this weekend) trying to find a place to get your Christmas tree.  We have decided to make it a family tradition to go pick out (and cut down) our own Christmas tree. Finding a place to do that close to home was a challenge. After a lot of web surfing we got a pretty good idea what is out there so I thought I'd make a list to share with you all.  Some are small shops with nothing but fields of Christmas trees, others are big farms that offer "Winter Festivals" including sleigh rides and Santa Claus. Take your pick!  (Be sure to bring cash, though, as most farms do not take credit cards.)
