On Saturday, we went to a local Christmas tree farm to pick our tree. We would have waited for the week after, but Gilles is away for a week from next Friday so we wanted to get our little adventure in before he went away. We also took along my mother in law which was lovely for the girls and for her to share that day with them and us.
The weather was lovely. The sun kept going in and out which meant for some wonderful sunlit photos as well. When ever i catch a rainbow in a photograph, the girls think it means that there is a fairy next to them. I kept telling Elle that i could see the fairies flying around her as i could see through the lens that the rainbow flare was there. I then get so excited to see their faces when i show them the back of the camera and they can really see that the fairies were with them!
The afternoon was just lovely. My mother in law picked a tree too so we had two trees tied to our car roof all the way home. I took the job of choosing our tree very seriously. I walked around all the tree's and i felt a little defeated as i walked back to Gilles and his mum because i just hadn't found the one. They were having a chat in the middle of the trees and the tree right next to them was it. Our perfect tree! I stood guard as Gilles went to get the man to cut it down.
I love these day so much. I have waited since July for this day after following the farms facebook and instagram account and seeing the tree's over the seasons. I was far too excited to get there and i want to go back again before the end of December to pick up some logs and to just have a walk through the tree's again. It really is a wonderful place and got us all in the Christmas spirit. We put the tree straight up and decorated it. We did have one tiny mishap where the tree fell down on top of us as we were trying to decorate it as i hadn't made a big enough hole in the mud in our pot but all was saved and our tree is the best one to date, i am sure! We all agree.
