The rain held off yesterday so we were able to go to the Christmas Tree farm and pick out our tree. It was a little chilly (about 50 but breezy and cloudy) but we still rode the hay ride to the patch of trees (Alex's favorite part.) After looking over every single tree they had we finally chose our tree. It is a beautiful 9 ft pine tree ( only $32.) Chelsea, Alex, and Anthony all helped Art with cutting down the tree. Once we got home the children waited very patiently while Daddy put the lights on the tree only to plug them in and find out that one strand was out even though they lit up fine before they were on the tree. Once that problem was solved they had a lot of fun decorating. We put all of the breakables up at the top and the plastic balls at the bottom. Christian thinks they really are balls and has already removed several and thrown them across the room. So far we only broke one ornament. I hope that will be all for this year. Can you believe this is the last day of November already?
