Getting our tree 2013

Getting our Christmas Tree is one of my favorite family traditions that we have.  My parents have been going to the exact same tree farm and cutting down their own since they were in high school (40+ years).  It is so special to think that I have gone every year, and the memories year after year are so fun to think about.  

This year was extremely special because we had 2 new babies to bring along with us... Andie and Stella did so well, and so did the boys.  We went up early and had a photographer come to take some pictures for us (we have a hard time getting the whole family together all at once, so we had to take advantage of it!) and then we had a picnic in the trees, then picked out the perfect trees for all 4 of our families.  It was extra special this year... and something I will always remember.

It's my favorite time of the year!!

These are just a few pics I got on my phone... I will share some the photographer snapped soon :)

I feel so blessed.  I am thankful everyday for my family.

I LOVE your annual tree farm experience! :) Seriously.. every year, I love reading about it and wish we had a tree farm nearby like that! And such a great idea that you had a professional photographer to do a shoot up there, too. Excited to see those photos!
