Growing up it was a tradition to load the family in the station wagon and drive down south to a tree farm to cut our own. These days we have simplified the tree process and head over to our friend's house to pick one (or two) out for our house. Very close friends of ours own a tree farm so we have made a tradition out of this yearly ritual of packing up the car and driving to their house. The boys play with their girls while the adults chat and pick out trees. This year little Jessica ran around in the backyard and loved hanging out with the dogs.
Poor Jonas was still sick and took a nap during this festive event.
I'm so excited to decorate the tree and the house this week. I can't believe December is right around the corner. There is something magical about this time of the year and now that I have children it's like experiencing the magic for the first time. A child's joy can touch the heart in so many ways.
I hope to be touched every day this season by the joy of my children.
Thanks Chris and Leslie for having us over. Good time as always and thanks Leslie for snapping some photos!
