Christmas Tree Hunting

This year Matt and I went Christmas Tree hunting for our first Christmas tree together.  We joined our friends and went to Furrow Farm in Hillsboro.  Despite the saw you see me carrying - I did not cut our tree down.  Matt put his manly skills to good use and cut our tree down, then carried it over his head to the truck... With one hand.  Because that's the proper way to carry a Christmas tree. We finished our tree hunting adventure with complimentary hot chocolate.  I got fancy and added two mini candy canes to mine.  
Can you believe that sunshine!?  We totally lucked out.  For those of you not familiar with Portland - sunshine is a rare commodity this time of year. 

Merry Christmas, everyone!
