YES! Let's get our hands dirty.

I have been waiting for this for a really long time and it finally happened this weekend.

The CJ family finally got a real Christmas tree. After year after year putting up, or should I say putting together, a fake tree we finally ventured out in the Hudson Valley and got us a real tree.

After searching around for a place to take the family this year, we came across Bilmar Nurseries, located at 26 Bilmar Boulevard in Pleasant Valley.

I gave my kids the rundown on a few places that we could go and a list of the things that each of the tree farms offered and when I told my son that we could ride an old fire truck into the woods to find our tree, he was sold.

So when we got to the farm, the fire truck picked us up and brought us into the woods to find our tree and after about an hour of looking around and an hour of arguing about which tree was the best we settled on this one. My wife captured me turning into a lumberjack on video....

What a sweet tree!!! I have to thank my wife Jamie for making sure that my ass didn't make into this video as I have a hard time keeping my pants up. LOL!!!

Happy Holidays!!!!
