We got ourselves ready and headed out to Baggenstoes Tree Farm!
Still lovin' her new shades!
Ready to boot up and hunt for a tree!!
The farm is awesome. We can drive the truck into the tree area and then the kids can just run and run. It's great fun for all of us!
Trapsing around.. they love this place!
We finally narrowed our selections (there are SO many lovely trees to choose from here!)
Doug making sure we can avoid a "Clark Griswald" moment when we get home! HA!
It was a keeper! Doug and one of the farm guys chopped it down.
I love this shot... they both are not fans of chain saw noise...haha!
Off he goes to shake and wrap it up for us!
We stopped at Five Guys and got some lunch then headed home to start the decorating process! I thought that maybe both the kids would be more into and better able to help with trimming the tree, and I was certainly right! They did such a great job helping me carefully get out the ornaments and picking out spots for them to go on the tree. It was precious time with them. Precious time.
Daddy is the tallest, so he gets to put the star on top! :)
My big helpers... love them!
The finished product. I love it when all the decorating is done and the boxes are put away and I can just sit and enjoy it all. Peaceful goodness.
Here's to a great start to the Christmas season!
