Christmas Tree 2009!

We finally got our Christmas tree on Saturday. It turned out to be a perfect day to head out and cut our own tree down! It was snowing but not to cold. We bundled up and headed down the road to find the perfect tree.

Where we go they take you around the tree farm on a wagon pulled by a tractor and drop you off. Of course we had to have a snowball fight since the snow was great packing snow! Even Emily tried to participate and I tried to stay out of the way while taking pictures! Some snow angles were made and after we found our tree we headed to pay and have some hot apple cider! The kids loved that.

Our tree this year is beautiful. It is a little smaller than some previous trees but it fits great in our small living room. We decorated it on Saturday Evening. The kids did it all, even Emily helped.

I have always had a real tree for Christmas and I plan on doing so for as long as possible. I have great memories of getting our tree as a kid and hope my children will as well. I was talking to Kyle about how cool it is to always have a different type of Christmas tree every year. It always looks different. Sometimes it is tall and skinny and sometimes it is short and fat! I'm not trying to put down anyone for putting up a fake tree at all. I just happen to prefer the real thing. I mean who would not want pine needles on the floor and occasionally stuck in your toes! =) Wouldn't be Christmas in my house without it!

Merry Christmas!

I agree Wendy! I love the real tree and we always have a wonderful time picking out our tree. It is exciting every year to have a different look and nothing beats the smell it brings into the house. Love it!
