After putting off the onslaught of photos, I've finally decided to tackle the thousands of images I have from the last couple months. To begin with yet another photo from the magic of "Santa's Forest".
It's always amazing to me at how some of the most interesting and wonderful places are in your own backyard. Stephen and I had talked about how perfect it would be to take Jack to a cut-your-own Christmas tree farm up in the mountains. We happened to see a sign on our way home one afternoon pointing towards Lincolnton. Low and behold we started one of our new family holiday traditions at a family owned and operated choose and cut Christmas tree farm.
The farm is wonderful. They've taken such great pains to make the whole experience so family friendly! They've got a very cool hay bale play area WITH slides. They have hot cocoa, cookies, animals you can feed, and even sheep dog demonstrations. Not to mention you get to cut down your own very pretty tree for a very reasonable price! Look up Herter Nursery in Lincolnton, North Carolina - we definitely weren't disappointed.
