We climbed aboard the tractor and trailer and made sure we sat down so as to be safe for our trip to the Christmas tree wood.
When we arrived we walked around the trees to find the perfect one, the children decided they would like a medium one, so we set about trying to find it.
Some of the trees were very tall
Much too big for the nursery.
When we found the perfect one our lovely tractor driver cut it down for us. We then took it back to nursery ready to decorate.
The older children decorated the tree whilst the younger ones had a sleep.
Every one agreed that it looks amazing.
