oh christmas tree

this was our first year cutting down our own christmas tree.
forgive me, i was a bit camera happy. 

it was so much fun.  the kids loved it.  it helped that it was a super nice day.  

we went with dave's parents and his aunt and uncle. 

avery found a tree she loved.  we kept looking but ended up going with her tree. 

it is the biggest tree we've ever had and i love it so much. :)

avery stuck with daddy through the whole lighting process. 

look how aves is displaying baby Jesus in the above picture...

so fun! We cut down our own tree last year but it was a SUPER cold day and the heater in the pick up was out and my 1 1/2 year old's mitten fell off and he got snow on his hand and freaked and we declared that the "rite of passage" age in our house was going to be 5 years old and until then it was a mom and dad date/outing. :) This year with the timing/holiday travel we're not going to get to cut down our own. :( Oh well, hopefully next year!
