The Tree 2009

Looking good with Santa at the tree farm!!

waiting for the tractor ride

Isaac really loves these family traditions ~ and he has such a sweet face!

the girls - NOT fighting - on the tractor ride out to the fields
(not that my children would ever fight.....*ahem*)

One cute, happy, COLD family with their tree
(I'm obviously behind the camera - as usual - w/ Micah in a front carrier)

wrapping up the tree to head on home

We went inside after this, warmed up by the fire, then headed off to eat at a local restaurant.  We're planning on making that part of our yearly tradition.  What a great, albeit windy & cold, day!!

Great pictures! Did you guys go to Western Tree Farm? The pictures look like it, so I was just wondering. This was actually the first year in about 7 or more that we didn't go up there, so I'm missing it. Anyway, glad you found your perfect tree and had such a great day!

Yup, Danielle, that's where we went. Did you guys go somewhere different this year? Or not get a live tree?

This is one of my favorite traditions we are making with our kiddos!!

Looks like it was cold! We went the following day.....no hats, gloves and fall jackets....just weird. We were all commenting on how weird it was that we weren't all in boots and winter gear!
