First Duncan Family Christmas Tree Hunt!

Black Friday November 23 2012, we woke up to the excited voices of our kids. Why?  Because we were going up to the mountains to find a Christmas tree.  Johnathan and I decided instead of standing in shopping lines we wanted to go do something as a family so we picked up a tag for a Christmas tree and told the kids we were going to the mountains. Jenna was particularly excited because she loves to ride in daddy's truck when it bounces on the dirt roads.

We got up and had some breakfast then packed up some food, warm clothes, chainsaw and tape measure and headed up above Kelly Canyon to find the perfect tree.  We are big fans of National Lampoons Christmas Vacation so we were excited to freeze our toes, legs, thighs, etc to find the tree for our family.  It didn't take long and we were marching around in the snow looking at everything from tiny four branchers to the big fifteen footers.


We looked in one place then headed to another and after a few minutes we spotted it, the perfect tree!  The kids agreed we had found the one we wanted, and Jenna sat down and took a rest, that is a lot of walking for a four year old.

It didn't take long to get it loaded up in the truck. We got all settled in when Andie asked if we could stop on our way home and get some Egg Nog! We forked out a pretty penny for Egg Nog at the Ririe gas station and listened to Christmas Music all the way home. We were headed home at about 10:30 a.m. and we passed ten or twelve trucks headed up to do the same thing.

I think finding a Christmas Tree might be the new Black Friday activity for our family. I was pleased that we found something so nice in such a short period of time and I can see this being a great tradition for the Duncan Family!
