Christmas Tree Huntin'

Today we did the annual "get-our-tree-the-Sunday-after-Thanksgiving." The kids always love trying to find the perfect tree, although their idea of a perfect tree is a scrawny, 2-foot tall Charlie Brown tree. They had a great time playing hide and seek between the rows of trees, and Lauren thought she was pretty cool carrying the saw for the boys. She was a little concerned that we would lose our tree when we loaded it onto the tractor, but Owen let her know that we have a ticket with the same number as the tag that we put on the tree. After a great lunch at Farelli's, we went home and the kids helped decorate the tree. The older they get the less bunched up the ornaments are at the bottom of the tree...and I can actually spread the glass ones all over the tree, not just the top!
