The Family Tradition That Almost Ended


– [David] You know how awesome? That would probably take up our whole living room. (chuckles) (cheerful Christmas bell music) She loves sorting things. (chuckles) Braylee, do you love sorting things? Hey, let’s go. – [Stacey] Are you going in the bus? – [David] Yeah. Guess what we’re doing, outside? Christmas tree, yellow bus, let’s go! Yellow bus, Braylee. (snowsuit swishes) It’s snow time! – Yeah, push. (Braylee hums) – Today, it’s our annual tradition, that we started last year,
so this is the second annual Wee Fam Christmas Tree Cuttin’. – How’s that? And then pull these down, over your boots. – I bet you there’s a better
name than that for it, but either way, we made a tradition, starting last year, so this
is our second time doing it. – [Stacey] Ooh, good job We’re goin’ out to cut
down a Christmas tree. – [Stacey] Which gloves do you want? – [David] In the school bus! – [Stacey] Yeah, get in there girl. She can’t pull her heel
all the way into it. Now is it better yet? – [David] Are you sure
there’s not a sock in there? Oh there’s a sock in one. – [Stacey] Is there? – Yeah, probably.
– Hold on. (Stacey gasps) Oh, is that better? Gloves? Put those on. – [David] She wanted
to put them on herself. She put ’em back in the
backpack to pull ’em back out. – [Stacey] This hand, this
one goes on that hand. Good job. (keys jingling) – Goin’ to the tree farm. Ready for the tree farm, Braylee? Say, yes! – Say trees! – Yay, trees! – Yeah! (Braylee cheers) – You’re gonna love it. – Jingle bells. – That’s right, jingle bells! (cheerful Christmas bell music) – [David] Ready to go get a tree? – [Stacey] Let’s go, okay let’s go. – Let’s go.
– Go! (snowsuit swishes) All right, where do we want to start? – [David] There’s so many trees, Braylee. – [Stacey] Where do you wanna start? All the way back there? (snowsuit swishes) (snow crunches) That’s my girl! – [David] Are you inspecting a tree? (Braylee hums) – That’s some deep snow, Braylee, huh? Mom’s on a mission. If we don’t find a tree
soon, we’re just gonna buy a pre-cut one, but
it’s still a tree, right? Braylee, it’s still a
tree, and that’s okay. Yeah, we’re on our way back. I don’t think there’s any. We’ll make a loop around the back to see if there’s any in the back where we got ours from last year. – They did say a lot of other
tree farms had to close. – Yeah, I don’t think
they have enough trees. There’s a tree shortage
this year or something. They said next year will be really good. We’re a little bit late
getting a tree this year, too, because of Thanksgiving
being a week later and… it’s been open for a little while now. (Braylee hums) Stacey said she doesn’t
want that really wide one. I think that one would be so much fun. You know how awesome? That would probably take up our whole living room. (chuckles) I think we found the tree! This is the one. Pretty sure this is the tree. It’s a pretty big one. (Braylee mumbles) Stacey wanted to go check and see if there was a tree down there that she might have seen. Yes, or no? – [Stacey] What? – [David] Yes, or no? – [Stacey] You want that? Okay. – [David] This is why we
absolutely love Minnesota. Isn’t this so pretty out here? Isn’t this just amazing? This is why we love Minnesota, huh, B? Snow and trees and everything. – [David] Pull up and break… – [Stacey] Places like this are good, because even if she runs a little bit, she can’t really get anywhere. – This is actually two trees. – [Stacey] Huh? – This is actually two trees. – [Stacey] No. Well then, it looks like
we’re getting a pre-cut. – [David] I don’t know,
they’re intertwined. I don’t know if I can cut down both of these pieces. If I can go below, where
they split in the bottom. That would be an epic tree. – [Stacey] How is that gonna
work though, in a tree stand? – There’s one piece in the bottom. I don’t know if they’ll like that or not? – [Stacey] Why don’t we just get a pre-cut and save ourselves–
– I really like this tree. – Huh?
– I really like this tree. Here let me show everybody
what it looks like in there. – [Stacey] Yeah, I was gonna
say, get an up close of that. – [David] Yeah, it’s definitely
a double tree, there. That’s probably why it’s so wide. (Braylee sings) – [Stacey] Do I press the camera button to prepare movies? – [David] Yeah. – [Stacey] Do I need to zoom in on it? (Braylee giggles) (Braylee humming) – [David] Braylee, get
over here, come back. (Braylee giggles) (Braylee whining) Come on, let’s go. We have to go. (Braylee crying) This is Braylee not
wanting to leave the snow. – Nope, she’s just melting into it. (Braylee whines) She’s becoming one with the snow. – [David] Yeah, you’ll be fine. – Yeah, no we have to go. – You’ll be okay.
– Come on, baby. (saw grinding) – This tree’s a tough one. I’ve been out here for quite awhile. Stacey and Braylee went to warm up. And I’m just cuttin’ away. (saw grinding) I got it, best tree in the world. I got it. Got the best tree in the
world. (exhales heavily) Worth it. We can fix it, it’s not broken. Nothing like sunset and hauling a tree. This to Christmas music
is gonna look so cool. (David imitates Christmas music) (cheerful Christmas bell music) ♪ I’m dreaming ♪ ♪ of a white Christmas. ♪ ♪ Silent night, holy night. ♪ ♪ All is calm, ♪ ♪ all is bright. ♪ That’s some good singin’, me. ♪ Last year I thought about
