The most wonderful time of the year! This year we spent Thanksgiving in Northern California - so on Saturday we went up to the Santa Cruz Mountains and chopped down our own Christmas tree. The family tradition is to tailgate with coffee and donuts while wearing our Santa hats. Once we're all hopped up on caffeine and sugar we scatter throughout the farm in search of the perfect tree. Once you find a contender you mark it with your Santa hat and chop it down! It was such a perfect tradition to kick off the season.
