Oh, Christmas Tree

The day after Thanksgiving we went and got our Christmas tree.  Dan wanted to cut down his own this year so we looked into tree farms nearby and decided to try Pinecrest Farms in Galien, MI to see how we liked it.  It was quick and easy and we all enjoyed the horse drawn wagon ride out to the trees.  We have had absolutely beautiful weather this fall and have been able to enjoy some last of the year outdoor activities before the snow and frigid cold set in.  I'm ready for snow anytime now as long as the date on the calender is December 1st.  Glad that we had a basically snow-free November.
 Dan snuck baby brother into this one:
 Sawing the tree we picked out.

 All cut down and ready to be bound and taken home.
 Magnolia did the honor of cutting the string that held the tree.
 Boothe was a little shocked as the tree sprung to life. 
 Pulling out the decorations and ornaments without pants.  It's kind of her thing.  I'm so used to it that sometimes people come to our house selling things or delivering packages and I won't even notice that Boothe isn't wearing pants until they are already gone.  I'm at the point where I'm satisfied if she is at least wearing underwear.
 Ho Ho Ho
 Magnolia had the honor of placing the star.  Our tree took 2 days to finish decorating because we had some light issues.  Dan didn't even get frustrated when he had to try and replace the bulbs that weren't lighting up...ahem.
 Boothe took her turn with the star too.
