When I was growing up we always had the tradition of going to get a real Christmas tree at a Christmas tree farm. My dad was a forester so of course we would get a real tree! That was my very favorite thing to do at Christmastime. Josh and his family used to go to a tree farm when he was little too. So we have definitely started the tradition with our family. We go to Gilbert's Tree Farm which is about 30 minutes from our house.
This was 2010. The girls first Christmas. This tree farm is the one my dad used to take us too. Such a great feeling to take my girls there.
This is our tree we picked out!!
It was sooooo cold that day!!
Josh and Sk.
This year the girls walked. They did NOT want to be held at all.
It's hard to get a picture with both girls, especially with our phones!!
They were having so much fun walking everywhere and picking up rocks.
This is the tree we picked this year!! We always get Virgina pines. That's what my dad always got us!
The girls brought pig 1 and bear 1 (Aleah has 2 pigs she sleeps with and Sophie has 2 bears she sleeps with). They are very much a part of our family.
They love picking up rocks. They each took one home with them. I found them in the car a few days ago!
When the man came to cut the tree down for with the chainsaw the girls didn't even cry. Then he gave us a ride back on his little four wheeler thingy. Not sure what they are called lol.
I am so glad the girls had so much fun!!
My brother, Jeremiah and his wife, Tiffany and my nephew, Seth meet us out there and they got their tree too!
The girls were worn out after all that running around.
I love this picture of Joshy and his baby girls. So sweet!! (Thanks Kk)
I am getting too excited about Christmas this year! I love all the festivities that lead up until Christmas. We still haven't taken the girls to see Santa yet but have plans to do that Monday!!! I hope they aren't scared of him!!
