We went and cut down our tree from a tree farm and were a little surprised at how expensive they are here. They are at least 20 dollars more here than back in Bellingham. It was a fun time, and we kind of had to do it because big brother kept talking about how we were going to go cut down a tree from our front yard. That is what we did last year, unfortunately for us we were all out of small pine trees this year so we went to a tree farm.
Here is my guy trying to smile in front of the tree. He is in that phase now were I say "smile" and he says "cheese" while making an awkward face. The tree we got is super sharp and prickly. We based our decision on size but also thought that the sharp needles would deter little hands from messing with it. I think the only hands it deters are mine. Both kids are not bothered by how much it hurts to try to touch it. Needless to say I went out to buy a few more packs of shatterproof bulbs because the glass ones I have seem like a bad idea for a few years.
We love our sweetie too so I added a picture of her here doing one of her signature faces at the dinner table.
And last but not least some live action of the sillies. Daddy says brother has good beat.
