Being married to Steve Southards, we don't buy fake Christmas trees. We also don't go to Home Depot's parking lot and pick one from their lot (which is what I did as a Wiens). No team Southards goes to the Christmas Tree Farm and cuts down our own. This is our second year doing this. We continued the tradition of cutting down our tree, then heading down to Louisburg Cider Mill and getting hot cider. It was a little harder this year with Payton, since the wind chill was in the low teens. We went quick. Payton was so cute all bundled up. I included a picture from last year, what a difference a picture makes :)
Steve on the hunt for the best one!
