Christmas Tree!

this is my first year ever having a real truly-live christmas tree, and, because of our big move, it will probably be the last. we took a family trip to a christmas tree lot to pick out the lucky winner yesterday. i found myself humming melodies from charlie brown christmas quite often. my heart went out to all the dinky charlie brown trees.


rachel didn't waste any time in letting us know that she wanted "the biggest christmas tree IN THE WHOOOOLE WORLD!"


and the winner is...


thanks to her short stature, she accepted that this tree was, indeed, the biggest. it was definitely the biggest that our non-vaulted living room basement ceiling could abide.


lucas was stoked.


a perfect fit!


daddy in action!




our bushy, heavenly-smelling tree with lights, before ornaments.

My honey is allergic to trees, apparently, so we've had fake trees ever since we got married. I'd always had real ones growing up, and it was the thrill of the hunt that was so much fun.

This year we're going to go Christmas tree hunting for my parents' tree since we'll be in the same town.

I'm so glad that you and your fam got to have so much fun making memories. They are adorable all draped in lights. So much fun!
