It is our family tradition that the Friday after Thanksgiving we drive to Wyoming (from Utah) and cut down the perfect Christmas tree. We love getting bundled up in our winter clothes and hiking through the cold snow until we spot the perfect tree. Each kid then each takes turns cutting down the tree. We take it home and spend the rest of the day decorating for the holidays. We have dozens of our favorite handmade ornaments to hang on the tree. This Clothespin Glitter Snowflake Ornaments makes a colorful addition to a Christmas tree.
