Christmas Tree

We enjoyed going out to cut down our Christmas tree for the first time this year!  We've talked about doing it before, but the kids have always been too small, etc.  But this year we went for it.  We had fun finding just the right tree and cutting it down.  And yes, it's important to wear a pink boa when you go pick out a tree. 

 The big kids found their own "trees" to drag back to the car as well.  Such big helpers! 

 Then we came back and decorated the tree.  I love these pictures and how Waverly was a part of "helping'! 

 Every year, after the tree is decorated, we turn off all the lights in the house, turn on all the Christmas lights, put on Christmas music, and eat ice cream as we sit and look at our beautiful work.
