Ho Ho Ho, let's put up the tree

Following Thanksgiving, the weather was beautiful, so we decided we needed to go get a Christmas tree, and while we were at it, we decided it would be a good idea to visit Santa. Torin decided he would allow someone else deliver his list to Santa while he watched from the safety of daddy's arms.

Claire: a stuffed bunny
Jacob: Wii games
Kate: Elsa pajamas Elsa slippers
Liam: Minion pajamas (with a flashlight) and slippers

We had a beautiful sunny day to go looking for a tree. After looking for a few minutes, we found the right tree, which took forever to cut down! We love the tree farm we bought it from because they put the tree in a tree shaker and then wrap it up.

Jared got the lights up Saturday night, and Torin was really interested! He loved Christmas lights! 


With a little 18-month-old running in the house, and Liam, we decided to leave a number of our favorite ornaments off of the tree. We took a few moments with them before boxing them out again.

We love having a lit Christmas tree!
