The Tree

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.  
Oh well.

 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.

We bought our first real tree this year and we'll never go back!
