Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland

We headed over to our local Christmas tree farm (just up the road from us) late this afternoon. Trudging through extremely deep snow, we managed to find the "perfect" tree.

Although the photos look peaceful and idyllic, don't be fooled. Miss 22-month-old was none too happy on her extended sled ride through the fluffy white stuff that kept ending up in her face and in her boots. Her wails pierced the silent solitude of the snow-laden farm.

Even so, we found a great big tree for the family room, plus a sweet little "Charlie Brown tree" for the dining room. We'll decorate the trees on William's birthday this Saturday, as has become our annual tradition.

Another year, another snowy trek for the perfect tree...

P.S. The child in red is Therese who looks a bit like a boy in the hand-me-down snowsuit...

Mom's the cutest! I dunno, the older kids look pretty capable. You might send them out by themselves next year, and wait for them in the parking lot! Sit in the warm car with Andrew and Therese and the snax!
