For the past few years we all pack up in the car...go and get the "danger truck" (which is my husband's old truck that stays at his grandmas house) and then head to get our christmas tree. This year the kids were so excited. They are getting older and really understand what Christmas is now so it's even more fun suprising them and being the "elf". We found the tallest tree we could that would fit in our house and packed it up in the danger truck.
It is a tradition every year to go get a fresh one!
