Jason and Lorraine. In 2016 we sold most of our belongings and left the city in southern California to start a small homestead in the mountains of North Carolina. We left the city in search for a more minimal and intentional life. We became passionate about growing our own food and knowing what exactly is in our food after I (Jason) became diagnosed with cancer. Now 8 years in remission we as a family are on a journey to live our passions.
We document our life on UZpost videos to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and not be afraid of change. We started our own online general store where we have available the things we make and use in real life. Thank you for following us on this incredible life changing journey!

Nice tree! Great memories for Penelope! We only did that one year but I still remember it as really special. My dad cut it down with a hand saw. We were really little. Then we had to tie it to the top of our little Volkswagen bug and bring it home. It was fun! Good idea to have a place for the chickens to go where there isn't snow. I put a shelter next to our barn for our ducks and the chickens go in there and dig dirt shower holes because the snow can't cover the dirt there. It is nice they have a dirt bath outside the barn!

We used to go to the same tree farm every year but my Mom passed in '05 and Then a few years later they closed. The owners passed and their children decided not to continue to keep it open so our traditions have changed. I switched to those rubber bowls several years ago because they are so easy to dump out frozen water. Merry Christmas! Kids will sled on anything even frozen grass.

We always buy a real tree but last year we started a new tradition. We buy a potted tree and keep outside until Christmas Eve then bring in for one day. Then we plant on our property. Great video.

Cutting down our own tree is always a tradition in our family! Daddy would always cut a huge 8 to 9 footer. It was so big he would put it into a 5 gal. bucket and fill it with sand and water to weigh it down and hold it straight. It was always so big and beautiful and smelled amazing. We do the same thing each Chridtmas! I know your tree is beautiful and I know this new cutting your own Christmas tree down tradition makes your hearts feel warm and happy! Enjoy!😊❤❤❤🙏🙏🙏🌲🌲🌲🌲🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

So sweet, I can relate to your little family trio. Our daughter is twenty-four and out on her own but we still set out to Home Depot the Sat after Thanksgiving every year, so Papa can tie up two trees on our jeeps. After a few years the tree guy knows you and you know him. LOL

So glad you are enjoying this tradition. Penelope will have such sweet memories from these times. Here we go to the forest service office and get a permit for a tree we can go cut in the forest. They have certain areas and sizes of trees people can go. Wild, uncultured noble fir trees...complete with time with a group of friends and families, hot cocoa and sledding. It's the best.
