tree hunting


thanksgiving came, with lots of family and good food, and went once we started hunting christmas trees and digging through boxes...unearthing glass ornaments wrapped up in paper and funny old christmas cards.

we found a beautiful tree this year (i finally talked the boys into riding the horse-drawn wagon this time around), and couldn't wait to rush it home to sis!
(who stayed home with grandma to nap and dream of sugar plums)

we're all so excited to share this first christmas with her....

happy monday, friends!

    I wish there was a "you cut your own" Christmas tree farm out here in Florida!

  13. These are wonderful pictures. We tramped out into the pacific northwest's wilderness this weekend to get our tree. Okay, we really went to a tree farm and cut one down, but there was a *lot* of mud. Does that count? : )

  27. You truly have an artistic eye. I'm sure that your family chose a perfect tree!

  28. Horse drawn wagon rides are the best! It looks like you picked out a super tree - I can't decide to get a real one this year, a real flocked or just totally cheat with a fake tree. Hmmm, we'll see....

  29. i have to say i am a little jealous of your tree hunting. since we are living with my parents while we house hunt we can't go on our hunt for the perfect tree. i miss the scent of pine in the house (my mom uses artificial trees). but thank you for letting us live vicariously through your adventure!

  30. I know that I say this on every post and probably sound like a broken record, but your photos are so stunning. I love how much beauty and special moments you are able to capture with your camera. It is like looking through a beautiful book of the loveliest things. Your blog is such a happy place.

    Love your tree adventures. Looks like a great time. Real trees are awesome!
