O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!

6 Dec

I love Christmas. Love, love, love it. I also love real Christmas trees. The smell, the look, and the picking out of the perfect one! This year we went back to the tree farm we went to 2 years ago.

Our best friends, the Sheets’, went with us. Our families together are crazy. We have the same amount of the same gender children in the same order and the same age. I don’t know how we found each other on this earth but I am so glad we did! It’s always crazy and fun together.

We were going to cut down a tree but we didn’t see any that were amazing and it was more expensive anyway. So we went back to the front lot and picked out a tree there. Also, once you buy a tree, they give you tickets for a little train ride. We loaded up our kiddos and sat in the train only to move 2 feet and then the train broke down! We cheered and thanked the conductor loudly. Our girls thought it was a great ride! Oh to be young and naive.

Nick and I picked this tree and Solace said “No. It’s too tall.”

Then she picked this exact look-a-like and said, “Yes, this one!!”

It took us about 5 days to actually get our tree decorated. First we were missing our decorations, then we found them (in someone else’s house!), then the girls had a meltdown about decorating and then life. So I wound up finishing the tree by myself one evening while Nick took the girls out and Roman napped. It was blissful.
