We went to the same Christmas tree farm we did last year (and the year before). This year, I made a wrong2A left turn, obviously. Otherwise, it would have been a right turn. turn and we ended up taking the “scenic loop.”

  1. Great Christmas tree cutting pictures! You are ahead of us, but we are now officially inspired!


  2. Wonderful pictures! We thought of you as we went thru Hillsboro coming down to Cannon Beach. Sher told us there was flooding on the coast highway and our car would not get thru as the water was getting higher… hence we came thru Portland.

    Looks like you have a great family tradition… lots of fun.

  3. Thanks! I’m glad you made it to Cannon Beach safely.

    Making family traditions is a lot of fun. I think next year we’ll get a smaller, lighter tree. This one is heavy!
