End of 2012/Beginning of 2013 Catch Up
We headed back to Timbuk Tree Farm for the traditional hunt for the perfect tree. Will felt very strongly that a Blue Spruce would be just the thing. So we trooped out into the field and found a lovely tree:
great shape, beautiful color, dreamy fragrance,
but dang those needles are sharp.
So touching the tree was a little unpleasant, but other than that, it was perfect.
Back at the lodge, Will had a lengthy discussion with Santa and Mrs. Claus about his Christmas list.
This year he wanted a Smart Board like the one in his classroom at school (if you don't know what that is, ask a teacher and then ask yourself why on earth a child would want one for Christmas), a tractor driven ice cream maker like the one at Dr. Weaver's house (again, a difficult thing for Santa to deliver), or a sewing machine.
Luckily Mrs. Claus strongly encouraged the sewing machine idea.
Soren didn't make any of the pictures this trip because he was having a 'No Pictures Please' kind of day.
We brought our prickly but perfect tree home, set it up and put the Christmas Train around it.
Love love love this time of year.
