This past weekend our goal was to find our Christmas tree. A local gentleman told us about Ben Hurd's Christmas Tree Farm. We followed the signs and found this charming small farm in the redwood hills. What a joy it was, the boys loved looking for a tree to "chop" down. The picking was sparse but we looked diligently and finally found the one. We had our picture taken with the tree an the boys enjoyed free cider and cookies. To top it all off we took a tractor ride around the farm. Next year we know to come early to avoid charlie brown Christmas tree syndrome. The tree was put up and decorated with lights and ornaments and now its official, Christmas time is here.
