The Christmas tree saga......


Okay, so we tried to go find our Christmas tree this year at the "Christmas tree farm" like we've done in years past. It's been so cold, but SSSOOOO fun that we've kind of made it a tradition...we get the tree and then get Chinese food. SOOOO we bundled up the kids, loaded them in the car and set out for our Christmas tree adventure...


Sophie bundled up for her first ever Christmas tree hunt....

We got there and MAN was it ccccccoooooooolllllllldddd........I mean down right freezing. It started sleeting, the wind was blowing....but the kids were all smiles and ready to start looking......


We looked and looked and looked. I told the kids that we get the tree that makes our heart sing LOL....So, I would find one and the boys would say..."wait...let me listen for my heart to sing", after a minute they would say "nope, my heart isn't singing" LOL....
Sophie being a good sport.....but wondering if it's worth it.....


Jake and Trent thought they would be funny...."MOM"! I hear, "we found the PERFECT tree!!" So I run over there and find this.....they think they're hilarious!!

Finding, what they thought, was the perfect tree....

It was a sad thing to think about.........BUT the only trees we liked, someone had already tagged....it had to be done. We went home without a tree that night.....
