A December Sunday at the Christmas Tree Farm

 Let's do a classic
holiday bucket list

For another holiday bucket list idea,
 read about our sleigh ride in Aspen

We grabbed a beautiful December Sunday and spent our time at the Christmas tree farm!  It was all things festive, all things that I was wishing for!  It's fun to kick off December with some classic winter recreating.  

Covered Bridge Ranch is sprawled on a hill in the middle of Colorado country.

It is absolutely peaceful and oh so pretty in every way.

Gentle and mighty Clydesdales...

Merry Trees

They have a fresh wreath making barn too, super cute!

We set off from the ranch to search for trees!

Loaded up on the hay ride and into the trees...

We mazed our way around rows of evergreens, looking for the perfect one to take home.

Pinecones, snowboots, mitten hand-holding, and tree-hugging...

Dakotah popped Cameron with an icy cold snowball and he is about to get it back...even though he doesn't know it yet...

He asked for it...

Okay, back to the peaceful tree search...

The gold sun, the blue skies, the green trees, the white snow made an ideal winter day out.

Oh, that's the one.  The lil blue.  Let's take him home.  Of all the trees, he's the one.

The guys all took turns cutting it down.

Chris carrying our lil blue,
the way he carries everything. ;)

(which makes me laugh, always)

Then we waited for a hay wagon to round the bend to pick us up.

Trees loaded and ready to ride!

Winding our way back to the ranch.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the tree team prepared and bagged our tree for transport home. Lines of trees piled on cars, ready to find new holiday homes.

While we waited, we warmed up by the outdoor fire, roasting marshmallows and sipping cider.

It was a joyful day, 
full of festive hearts,
as we embraced the gift of 
family and of outdoor beauty.
