The Christmas Tree - Dec 2007

Hello. Here I am again, playing catch up on pictures. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Ours was great - but always so busy right at the end. At the beginning of December I always feel like I have so much time to get everything done, then all of the sudden one day I feel panicked that there is no time left and I have so much to do. I never feel that "in the middle" place. I'm not sure why. I think part of my problem is I always add more things to do or make because everything seems so fun & festive in December.

Here are a few pictures fom the Christmas tree farm in Yamhill where we got our tree. It's quite a drive, but we always like the horse ride on the covered wagon, hot chocolate & cookies and the Frasier (sp?) Firs they have. This year it was snowing when we headed out there, but it didn't stick. We missed the horse ride twice (because of all the people) and didn't buy a Frasier Fir because they were either too big or half dead inside. Ugh. We are thinking of finding another (closer) spot for next year.......especially with 3 kids! Does the gas station still sell trees? Ha ha! (Oh - I forgot to add, I threw in my old pair of tennis shoes, and went to put them on and had 2 left feet!! How is that possible, I thought - but I have 2 nearly identical pairs of this brand of to top it off, I got to hike the tree farm in my good (suede) shoes!)

Here are couple of picture of that day and our tree at home. I forgot to get a picture of it after we cut it.
