Our family tradition began about 13 years ago. After seeing a story about William’s Tree Farm on the Oprah show, we decided to take a ride out to Rockton and cut down our very own Christmas tree. Well, as you know the farm was quite different then. And our family was quite different as well. Our children, Jacquelyn and Daniel Jr. were very young. They so enjoyed the petting zoo, the zip line, the wagon ride out to the trees, and most of all the adorable, loving, always playful, dogs.
Every year we come to the farm, usually the first weekend, only because the weather starts turning and though all of the trees are beautiful in their own way, you really don’t know what you are getting with a bunch of snow on it. We make a day of it as well. Not realizing how much energy it takes to hunt for the perfect tree, our first visit really exhausted the family. So, now we pack a lunch and we get hot cocoa and popcorn right there in the lodge.
Now that our children are adults, they still look forward to “getting a tree”. Sometimes we bring walkie-talkies, just in case we split up, you know, to cover more ground. We all get excited when we find a tree that looks special. Everyone then comes to the “spot” and the judging begins. If we are all in agreement, that lucky tree comes home with us. Or wait, maybe we’re lucky ones, hmm?
Thank you William’s tree farm for giving us the opportunity to have a part of your family over to our house for the holidays.
