Noah is ready with saw in hand.

Look, Jeremiah found a perfect sized tree for him!

He is so pleased with himself!

He's headed for the car. (No, we didn't really bring this home)

Stopping for a photo-op. Sophia was mellow the whole time and eventually fell asleep.

Snug and cute

Today we were able to get out and go Christmas tree hunting with dear friends. It was a clear and crisp day, perfect for tree-cutting. As always, there was plenty to be done at home, but this is a time our family looks forward to every year - choosing and decorating the Christmas tree. It was a treat to be able to go with friends. The kiddos had a great time with their pals and enjoyed hot cocoa and candy canes when we were done. The only hard part was choosing from what seemed like thousands of trees. I think we found the perfect one, though. It looks great in the house, even though it's not decorated yet. I hope you are not too "busy" to enjoy this CHRISTmas season. Believe me, I've been there. Take time out for what really matters. Step back and thank God for small blessings and make memories together.
I think we found our tree at last!

Anyone for log-rolling?
