Christmas Tree!

This past Sunday Luke and I decided to start a new family tradition. We decided that we would cut down our own Christmas Tree. We thought what fun it would be to get the kids all bundled up, go a tree farm and pick our the perfect Christmas Tree. Well...................fun...........not so much. Yes it was fun for a while walking around in the snow with the kids but for some reason Luke and I thought that it would be easy to find "the one perfect tree". After about an hours and the kids getting bored we just finally picked one. Then the excitement began!!!!! So here is how it all went down:

Cutting a large tree with a little saw ----- NOT EASY ----ask Luke.
Loading the tree onto the cart -----NOT EASY - IMPOSSIBLE --DIDN'T HAPPEN----ask Luke.
Dragging a tree about a mile -----NOT EASY ----ask Luke.
Getting the tree on the car ---- NOT EASY ----ask the tree farm loaders. Getting the tree off the car and into the house ----REALLY HARD - NOT EASY ---ask Luke.

Thinking the tree didn't look that big outside once we got the tree inside - HYSTERICAL!!
Enjoy the pictures below!! HAHA!




The Perfect Main Family Christmas Tree!


Let the cutting begin! Yippie!

What a hilarious post! When I saw the picture of your Christmas tree in the house, I had flashbacks to our first tree after we were married. It was so wide it took up half the width of our living room. I'm so glad things are going well with the kids. Everyone looks happy and healthy. It's going to be a wonderful first Christmas for Vlad.
