It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I know it's close to Christmas when I have new pictures of our traditional visit to the tree farm and of decorating the tree! We went on Saturday afternoon to get the tree and while it wasn't cold, it was pretty muddy. We had a good time and trudged around for quite a while to find just the perfect tree. I'm sure when you see the pictures you'll agree that we choose well!

Saturday evening we went to some friends who live on Front St. in town to watch the lighted parade. It was really good this year! A lot of people from church gather there to watch the parade and it's very fun to have all the dads and kids outside and the moms and babies inside watching through their large picture window in their living room! We always have a great time.

So, it was Sunday afternoon before we got around to decorating the tree...actually, it was more like Sunday evening. Ed & I had such a time getting the tree to stand up straight and not fall over. I don't know what the problem was, but now every time anyone touches the tree, I'm just sure it's going to crash. Then we had a lot of trouble with the lights, but finally it was ready for the girls to begin to put on ornaments! Hooray!

So, I have a ton of pictures of the tree and that whole process at this web album which you can view by clicking here. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

What a fun tradition! Your tree looks great! Loved the picture of Elise at the top of the Christmas tree at the tree farm...that would make a cute Christmas card picture :)
