Today was the day....the Annual Get Our Christmas Tree Adventure. Our adventure is the same every year, see last year's adventure, yet it is different every year. We go to the same farm, traipse through the same forest, have lunch at the same place, ride the same hayride...yet every year it is different, and every year it is better.
This is the first tree that caught our eye today. All of our ornaments would clearly stand out with this tree. The only problem was that it was not quite green enough, so we moved on.
This tree really called to us. Micheal really liked this tree...he likes cute little things. Unfortunately we have way too many ornaments for a tree this size so we had to walk on by, again.
We finally located the perfect tree. Before we could cut it down, we had to perform our Family Ritual...dancing around the tree and singing the Christmas Tree Dance song. You are in luck this year....I videoed the dance. Oh Yeah......you can thank me later!!
We have been performing this ritual for many years...I think we even did it before we had children!! If you think that is bad....we sing this song every year on the drive up to the Christmas Tree Farm.
Just for you.....here is my family performing the above song last year on Christmas morning for their grandparents....again...you can thank me later!!
I never said we were normal!!!
We transported our carefully chosen and thoroughly christened tree home and decorated it. Our tree is beautiful, our house smells heavenly, and our family tradition has continued on for another year.Merry Christmas!!! I hope I brought a smile to your face and a chuckle to your belly!!!
