Tree Hunting 2016

Nov 29, 2016

We went Christmas tree hunting for the third year in a row with our favorite family, the Gilots.  Does this make it a tradition that’s unbreakable yet?  Because I’m game every year!  (We even got an extra special treat because we had another family along with us this time around.  Hey Melissa, Bruce, and Cecelia!  Welcome to the blog!)

Louis has kept his enthusiasm level as high as it was last year about our tree hunting excursion.  But then, Louis never seems to drop his enthusiasm about anything…ever.  So it’s hard to tell what his favorite thing in life really is.  Maybe his favorite thing in life is life.

He was excited to carry the kid’s “saw”.  And Lou was actually the one to point out and choose our tree.  So it was kind of a big deal for him.

It’s funny how small this tree looks in the field.  Yet in our house, it looks like a beast.  Good thing we have the tallest ceilings in the world, or else we would be getting ourselves into trouble every year.  Go big or go home, right?

Let’s pump up Bennett’s manly ego right now by letting everyone know that it barely took any effort from him to chop this baby down.  ::ahem Jon-Erik::

Feisley’s Farm is one of those places that gives you all sorts of warm fuzzies.  It’s quaint.  After you get your tree, you sit and eat popcorn and drink apple cider at the same table you have in each year’s past.  The staff is incredibly friendly.  And it really does put you in the mood for Christmas.  It’s kind of the best.

Plus we get to spend some time with this beautiful trio.  Even if it does take Jon-Erik waaaaaaay longer to cut down a tree.  And he almost had it land on his entire body as it fell.  But we’ll let that slide.  Because you guys are pretty.

We’ve got our tree all set up, but have yet to decorate it.  Let’s pretend it’s because we want the branches to settle and not because we literally are too lazy to get that far yet.  Our attic is two stories up…and then dragging the boxes down….and stringing the lights….

I’m just not there yet.  I’m okay with a nakey tree for a bit.

And we are off to the races for the Christmas season!  Our storefront is hoppin, our schedules are filling with fun holiday parties and events, and I’m starting to have mild panic attacks about Christmas cards and presents that I need to make (and figure out).  Happy early holidays!
