The Great Christmas Tree Hunt

Obligatory tree hunting family photo

Last weekend we headed up to the woods to hunt down our Christmas tree with our good friends. And as always, when you mix kids & snow it equals a good time! Oh yeah, and we also found a beautiful tree in record time. Success all the way around and then on to the sledding and giggles

First, the search:
Papa & his lil' girl

Sledding girl

Then the love:
Big girl smiles

The tree hunting maniacs

Then the silliness:
Boys will be boys

Sledding Fun

Papa & his girls:
Papa & his girls...

Girl Power:
Lil' Mermaid is Peelu's beast of burden

We have lift-off!

Pure excitement:
Excited - can you tell?

Now it's the boys turn:
Uh-oh the boys are on the sled!

And even a little adult together time:
Happy smiles while Christmas tree hunting

We are so happy that we live someplace where we can have this wonderful tradition (and usually with snow). We hope that we will always be able to keep it up. And we hope that even when the maniacs are teenagers they will want to keep going with us and keep wanting to sled down hills and throw snowballs and enjoy the beautiful wonders of Central Oregon at Christmastime.
