Christmas Tree Huntin'

Once again our family went to the mountains to find a Christmas tree. It feels weird to still be talking about Christmas in January, but I'm just trying to get caught up so I can get my second blog book printed. Nowadays I don't have time to scrapbook, so my blog has been a great substitute for that and for keeping family and friends updated on our family.

Look at all those trees.

It was very cold. In fact we postponed our trip twice because of bad weather.

But we managed just fine!

On the hayride to the field of trees you could still see lots of snow from the snowstorm which occurred the weekend before.

I walked around scoping out trees while the kids...

had a snowball fight.

They also like to play tag while running through the trees like crazy people.

The boys have lots of fun... and well... nobody knows us up their anyway!

Another perfect snowball.

Okay, it's finally time to get serious about looking for a tree.

Found it! It sure didn't take long to pick out one this year once we started really looking.

really, i just think everybody was cold and ready to go.

It sure didn't take those guys long to cut it down and...

get it loaded up.

Now we're headed back to the main building for some nice warm hot chocolate and apple cider.

We always have fun on this family trip... even when it's freezing outside.
