Justin and I got our Christmas Tree a few weeks ago – beating the cold spell that we have been having. This was only our 2nd time getting a real tree for our home, the last apartment we lived in would not allow real trees so we had a thin fake one. I was SOOOO excited to put up a real one, and cut it down!
We went to a place that is ran by a wonderful family near Lake Dubay – and they had be hooked when I saw their website and ready this —
“Tree sales helped kickoff a campaign to raise awareness and over $32,000 for the A-T Children’s Project. Past sales have benefited The Salvation Army, Portage County Youth on Ice, Head Start and Redeemer Lutheran Church Holiday baskets. Pheasant Pines also participates in Adopt-A-Highway program”
The joy I get from my Christmas Tree spreads so much farther than my living room! And I LOVE the fact that they use earth friendly pesticides and use minimal fertilizer – they are not the perfect trees you see in most lots and that is yet another thing that I LOVE about the Tree Farm. It is also a Pheasant Farm, and the pheasants are roaming free – and yes I did want to take one home with me!
Justin and I bundled up for our adventure, and when we got there we had a great chat with the owner, and he told us where to go, and how to find the trees we were looking for. Justin and I walked a ways to find the tree we wanted – I found one I really wanted, and so did he – BUT …. I wanted a HUGE massively tall tree, and he was a little one. We compromised with a 7 some foot tall Blue Spruce, BEAUTIFUL!
It took us a few tries with the self timer to get a picture : )
We had to be careful walking to make sure we didn’t step on any newly planted trees : )

Yup this is our tree !!! LOVE IT!
I giggle when I see this photos – because Justin said while we were walking and dragging the tree that ” a trip with a photographer takes twice as long ” HA it’s so true! We stop and enjoy the little things!
All decorated! We had to wear gloves to put on the lights and garland – Blue Spruces have mean needles!
