BrownTown Christmas Tree 2010

In Family Fun, Holidays by Les BrownLeave a Comment

ChampionsToday we went in search of BrownTown Christmas Tree 2010. Since living in Dallas we’ve always gotten our tree at Home Depot – quick, easy, and cheap, but not very high on the family experience scale. In Oregon, we trudged through waist-deep snow in the National Forest and cut down a tree, but that’s another story. Anyway, we decided that this year we wanted our tree acquisition to be a bit more of an adventure so we drove out to Flower Mound and hit the Christmas Tree Farms.
Now, calling these places “farms” is a bit of a stretch. They are definitely farming something out there, but it’s not Christmas trees. Regardless, they had a lot of neat stuff set up for the kids – and some beautiful, lush, over-priced trees. We just couldn’t pony up $180 for a 7 foot tree that runs $40 at the Depot. So, we hung around and let the kids have all the fun they could handle and scooted right back on over to Old Faithful and got a beauty of a tree for 1/4 the price. All in all, it was a great day and the kids had a blast.
