Got It

I’m happy to report that we made it. The kids made a fast recovery so by Saturday we were able to head up to the mountains and cut our tree.

Looking for the perfect Tree

After a couple hours of playing and looking, we found our perfect “Charlie Brown” tree:

Found One

We really wanted a noble this year, but found a nice fir tree instead. I think it’s magnificent- and so is the man carrying it.

At first, Ms O wasn’t sure of all the white stuff and kept asking me to wipe the snow off of her mittens. But, after a few more falls in it and watching her brothers roll around in it, she decided that snow was fun after all. Here’s her *huge* smile to show it:

She Likes It

I love love love this little girl!

We put the tree up in our living room last night and the boys really enjoyed decorating it with all the “kid” ornaments. (The other ornaments do not go on the tree until Christmas Break starts and the daycare children aren’t here.)

So now all the lights are up, the tree is up and our house is filled with excitement. I love Christmas!

  1. Sounds like fun. We stink. We have a fake, allergen-free tree.

    Boo.

  3. I’m so glad y’all were able to feel well enough to get your tree. It’s lovely and I really love the idea of trekking through the snow to collect it–of course, I live in Tucson so that seems romantic to me. Anway, I love the big grin on your little one’s face.

  4. That’s awesome. Here in Australia we have to settle with cutting trees from Christmas tree farms that look nothing like your pics. What a wonderful experience for your children.
