Tree chopping, er, shopping…

FullSizeRender-10We tried out a new tree farm this year.  Upon arrival, we were told that the u-cut section of the farm was closed; all their good-sized trees were wiped out last weekend and the rest need to be left to grow.  Bummer (especially as it’s only December 3rd!).  We might have bundled back into the car to try another farm, but this farm happened to have a nice selection of pre-cut trees to choose from as well.  We thought it wouldn’t hurt to take a look.  So we looked and found one so quickly that I didn’t even have time to take a picture (not that choosing a pre-cut tree is remotely the same as hiking around a tree farm and chopping down one’s own).FullSizeRender-11FullSizeRender-9It wouldn’t be Christmas without our traditional “TIMBER!’ picture.  We had to make do.

The girls have their own little tree to decorate (with non-breakable ornaments), but were dying to get at mine.  For the first time ever, I let them.  We had a lovely afternoon together listening to Christmas music and hanging the ornaments.  (When they go to school tomorrow, I’ll simply fix what needs fixing.  Ha.)decoratingtree02decoratingtree01(Holly’s little leg kick cracked me up.)  I’ll post a picture of the finished tree in a few days.

    Well we knew that a timber had to be involved at least he got to yell that as he loaded the tree 🙂 The girls are beautiful and I love all the smiles.

    So glad you got the “timber” yell off the back of the car! Funny!!
    Girls look great–love holly’s little flourish kick.

    That picture of Holly with the leg kick is adorable. You do recall, of course, that I have warned you about her teenage years and about how she will be a hit with the boys… She is just lovely and confident and fun!! Good luck with that.

    As for the tree, your ornaments are so pretty. No doubt that the girls wanted in on that action!
