We headed to 4-C's Christmas Tree Farm in Half Moon Bay. Originally I wanted to buy one from a non-profit charity, but since I couldn't find a lot, we figured a locally grown tree was the next best thing.
Eventually we found a good one...
And everyone except for me took turns sawing at the base!
The guys hauled it into the back of the truck, though we saw lots of people with trees strapped to the top of their cars. I'm not sure if our bean-shaped Prius could have handled it though.
Back at home, we had to use the chainsaw to clean up the base. Then we had to figure out how to get the tree to stand straight.

I have a couple collections worth of ornaments, namely Star Wars...
|Yep. Slave Leia on my tree..oh my.|
|A lot of these cute Hallmark ones.|
Anyway, now that the tree is up, I'm 100% in Christmas season mode! Yay!
Have you ever cut down a tree before? It looks like hard work!
