A Christmas Tree Adventure

It has been years since I have cut down a Christmas tree. We were hoping to be able to do it last year, but a 6 month old combined with -45 celcius was too much! So Saturday, we bundled the kids into the car and drove out to Sandpiper Tree Farms to choose our tree.

Anthony spent the time telling us he was cold (it wasn't THAT cold out!), Owen, was scared of the trees and didn't really want to be put down so Troy and I took turns carrying him. I did manage to convince him to stand so I could get a few pictures of him! And Alexandra? well, I'm pretty sure the pictures will speak for themselves!

yup, this was about 1 minute later....

this is as close as Owen would get!
this was a better distance!

Our house smells wonderful, the tree combined with the gingerbread cookies the kids andI spent Saturday morning baking and it really is Christmas time.
