Early Saturday morning we headed up to North Bend Washington to try cutting down a Christmas tree for the very first time.  We didn’t do much research for this endeavor, so when we saw “Christmas Creek” had a working website, was 3o minutes from Seattle and had a decent “Yelp“(albeit from 3 years ago!) we decided we’d give it a try.u cut christmas trees near seattle washingtonholiday traditions in seattle with kidsucut christmas trees near seattleucut christmas trees near seattle with kids
I don’t know what it is about being a tree farm, but everyone was so nice.  Thank you to the lovely family who took 3 shots just to get us a decent family picture!

We had a lovely adventure and the boys were delighted as dad cut down the tree-except for a minute when cold and snow and a forest of trees was too much for one little monster.

After the tree-cutting we met the sweetest Santa we’ve ever met (and we could take pictures for free!) . He asked what the kids liked and listened to the answers they gave, and even though they were in toddler-ese this man understood. The boys warmed up to him and we got our best Santa picture ever!  They also got their first candy cane.

The fireplace in the warming hut provided great entertainment, and we enjoyed free cider and delicious 2 dollar cookies (still two dollars since 2007!)ucut christmas trees near seattle

The hayride around the farm made the whole experience seem more like an adventure.

And then we watched the tree get shaken and baled and  put into our van to take home.  The romantic version of tying the tree on the top of our car was trumped by the fear that it might just fall off on the highway. LeeLee and the Bean didn’t mind the company the least bit.

I think this is the most beautiful tree we’ve ever had and I look forward to making this farm visit a family tradition.
