With holiday season is in full force, I figured I better share part 1 of our 2010 Christmas tree adventure.
The Sunday after Thanksgiving, Billy and Amy invited us to tag a Christmas tree at Treat Farm. We packed up some warm mulled cider (and our annual house guest Brendan) and headed off to the neighboring town of Orange.
We could have cut down our selection right on the spot, but didn’t want to put up our tree with turkey leftovers still lingering in the fridge! Treat Farm lets you tag your tree, leaving it on ‘reserve’ for pick-up later in the season. Unfortunately, there was no snow like last year. While I love gazing out over a winter wonderland, I don’t enjoy searching in freezing cold temps. I was grateful for a calm, sunny day for our hunt.
A wee bit of tailgating.
I love that it’s easy to find beautiful farm views so close to our home.
If the weather cooperates on Sunday, we’ll be back to claim our tree.

A chili cook-off sounds like fun! We just made a chicken chili verde last weekend that was a nice twist on the usual.
I should have worn my matching jacket. D would have HATED that! Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow when we pick up the tree.
I like Dorney’s jacket
Wow, I even got billing in the credits! Gret pics Liz, you have a really good eye. Love the pickup truck. Hope your enjoying the holiday season so far. Kicked it off last night with two parties and lots more this weekend. Tomorrow is our 4th Annual 35 St Neighborhood Chili Cook-Off. Last year we had 12 entries and this year we are expecting even more to vie for the coveted Golden Ladle. Hope to see you guys soon!
