friday field trip: tree hunt

Once we finish a round of open-face turkey sandwiches (and perhaps a post turkey nap?) we move enthusiastically into the next stage of our holidays, 'crankin' out' Christmas.  The kick-off event is our annual tree hunt with the Hogan family.  In recent years, we take this tradition to Mountain Star Farm in northern New Hampshire.  I must say, it feels magical to hike through rows of Balsam & Frasier Firs, cousins running to and fro, adults searching for their version of the perfect tree. Our stories often take a farcical turn but the fun makes it all the more memorable.  Even if you can't cut your own tree this year, make your outing fun with a stop for hot cider or cocoa ... we made our pitstop in Bath, at their wonderful General Store.

 Enjoy these pics from today's field trip - made more beautiful by the recent snowfall.  Happy Tree Hunting to you!
