It's that time of year again...
We ventured out on this brisk 75 degree evening to pick out our Christmas tree!
Now, I know that I said we were planning to go cut our own down...
but that place is over an hour away, and the trees that you cut down aren't really "my type"--
they are sort of au natural, woody... not the sturdy pretty needles ala Frasier Fir.
We opted to go to the local nursery at the front of the neighborhood to pick out the perfect tree
for our family this year. The boys were LOVING the Christmas tree lot...
Carson and Slade ran up and down the aisles of trees until we found "the one!"
It doesn't seem possible that this time last year these were my little babies...
... and this time next year, I'll be the mommy to THREE precious little boys.
After we unloaded our Christmas tree... we got the boys into jammies and snuggled onto the couch
to watch The Elf of the Shelf. Yes, I am that mom who put them in little reindeer hats indoors,
with 75 degree weather outdoors... I cannot help myself. Just go with it.
The Elf on the Shelf movie was darling. We preordered a copy from Barnes and Noble.
It will be fun to watch every year as we bring out our own Elf on the Shelf, Cookie!
Hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving and are getting into the Christmas spirit!!
