Our annual tree hunt at the Ozark Valley Tree Farm…
As a little girl my family made a big deal out of the perfect christmas tree. My dad would load us all up in the truck and we would head out for that perfect one.. Remember that scene in “Christmas Vacation” where they hike out in the wilderness to search for the perfect tree and when they see it all the light shines down and the angels sing, yet the family stands all frozen to death and miserable… that’s pretty much what I remember ;P No really though, my best memories are the family traditions that we’ve shared and carried on through the years.
Jared and I were so excited when our community established a tree farm a few years back. Ozark Valley adds the most amazing touches to an already fun family day. Our local farm has a cocoa and cookies shop, an ornament craft for kiddos, a hayride to the tree farm and the kindest service ever! The kids adore it and the atmosphere for us parents is not so bad either. It’s set back in the hills with the prettiest views of the Ozarks. It’s also the perfect place to take a photo for Christmas Cards. I think they even offer a photographer on site if you choose that route. Here are a few details I captured from our day.
Tis the Season!
