This year, for our last Christmas in San Diego, my family was finally able to cut down our very own Christmas Tree! We visit the Family Christmas Tree Farm in El Cajon (also listed as being in Santee) each year to take photos and wander around all of the different trees, so I knew exactly the spot when it came time.
When we arrived, my husband still wasn’t convinced that we would actually be able to cut down our own tree. But, after some time searching to find just the right one, an employee handed off a saw and the boys went to work. Our son was SO excited to be able to hold the saw all on his own and begin cutting.
After we were done, we decided to cut off three slices of the stump left into the ground to turn into ornaments for our first real tree as a family! If you are looking for a fun holiday tradition, I would look no further. The Family Christmas Tree Farm even has a small farm animal area, beautiful wreaths, and a snow-painted sections of trees.
It is seriously one of my favorite places to go during the holidays, and if you go later in the day, you can stop on that same street to see the neighborhood Christmas light displays on Pepper Drive! This is also where we drive around each year.
Have fun, and don’t forget to print off this coupon for a FREE baby Christmas tree!
