*A Country Christmas*

No, literally.

This year, for our annual family Christmas tree cutting tradition, we choose a local tree farm, Country Christmas Tree Farm.  I *love* this place!  We've been to a few places since we moved to Michigan, trying to find *just* the right "feel".  Now I do believe we have found it!  A nice Christian family-owned business, nice trees to choose from, a warm gift shop (fireplace included!), hot drinks & popcorn balls!  A hayride picks you up once you've chosen THE perfect tree, complete with a chocolate lab to run alongside you.  Then they top it off with a FREE professional photo op.

And this year my parents were able to go along with us ~ the memories being created make me feel SO happy & blessed!

Tali being cute!

Happy Isaac

Mema & Papa bought the kiddos suckers!

YUM

A sticky mess!

Probably happy it's over!
(I tend to take a LONG time to pick out *just* the right tree  ;)

What I saw was just wonderfully adorable. Only about half the pictures loaded, though. Frown.
