Oh Christmas Tree...

Thanksgiving was a blast with both sets of parents. We ate and did a whole lot of nothing.
Black Friday was a little crazy with the shopping (that's a story for another time) and then on Saturday we went out for what has become our annual Christmas tree hunting tradition!

Other years there has been little or no snow, but this year we were in about a foot of fresh snow!  So pretty and fun to play in, but awfully hard to actually see the trees under that much snow!

And no, I have no other pictures from this outing... it's kind of hard to take pictures when you're carrying a baby abominable snowman!  A good time was had by all and now, my tree is up and decorated.  Yay!

This is one of my very favorite ornaments.  It's very small, but it reminds me so much of Cory and the love of the blankie!

First tree in our new house!  We put our old table in the living room with our half size tree on it so Noah can't reach it.  Perfect!  And Cory had fun "helping" me decorate.  Really he just wanted to play with his Guido and Luigi ornaments!

26 days until Christmas!


  1. You have Guido and Luigi ornaments? Well, those would be popular around here as well. =D

    LOVELY tree and what a fun hunting experience. =D

  2. We did a mini tree when Ethan was that age, too. The twins seemed to jump ages just perfect where we didn't have to...
    This is our first year to chop down the christmas tree ourselves. We went and tagged it a couple weeks ago. Now just to find it again ;)

  3. That family picture is fantastic! It's fun to see you all bundled up in the snow. (It's been in the 70's here this week!).
