I am not sure if the kids were more excited about making our yearly trek to the Christmas Tree Farm or if I was more excited :o)
I LOVE going to the Christmas Tree farm :o) I especially like when the weather is warm and sunny when we visit the farm.
I know some of you probably thinks that's weird because you like the idea of a white Christmas and crackling fires and bundling up in coats, boots and scarves, but not me! Ha! I HATE cold weather. If the temperature never got below 60 I would be a very happy chicka!
The tree farm we visit built a new "petting zoo" since we were there last and it is really nice! The kids had a ball feeding the animals and "baaing," "clucking," and "neighing" at the animals...constantly...to be fair that was mostly baby boy :o)
Sunshine's class at school is reading Charlotte's web so she felt a strong connection to this cutie!
Next, we set out to find the perfect Christmas tree. I have a picture of the kids doing this same walk every year...
Think there's any chance I will be able to get them to do that same, hand in hand, walk in ten years? Ha!
I call this one, "Hey Mama! Are you coming?"
Me and that boy like to stick together...big time :o)
You know that "sassy, hand on your hip" pose that is so popular on facebook, especially among college girls? It comes natural to my Little Pumpkin!
I call the following three pictures, "The 'Hey Mama! Take my picture by this one.' Montage."
We finally found the perfect tree!!!
We are currently living in a rental and space is limited so we went with the "Charlie Brown" model :o)
In keeping with tradition, each of the kids took a turn cutting down the Christmas tree.
Watching our tree get cleaned...
Wrapping it up! Yay!
Next on the agenda...pig races! Is that just an Arkansas thing or do y'all do that in other parts of the country?
Not sure what's going on here. Practicing his hog call?
Handsome little man!
Big sister. Little brother.
Check out that cute little smile. I LOVE it. She lost her first top, front tooth a few weeks ago and the other is lose. So sweet!
My beautiful baby girl.
A fun day.
I'm curious. Do you cut down a tree each year or do you have an artificial tree?
