Christmas Tree Huntin’ tree hunt_0022

Here’s another one of those posts that I just didn’t get around to when we did it weeks ago.  You know my reasons {…and the perfect little knit gray hat…the dark gray booties…and all the other shopping and preparing going on for Baby C.}, but I still wanted to post these photos here since this little blog keeps track of our family’s life. tree hunt_0009

I will say that cutting down a Christmas tree is just not that big a deal if you own a Christmas tree farm.  We see them every day.  I’ve been trying to think of a way to make it more special and I think the next time we plant {late winter} I’m going to let MM pick out a liner from the batch as HER tree.  We’ll put a special tag on it and let her take care of it for the next four years as it grows.  And then when it’s time to cut it {and she’ll be almost 7–ACK!} she’ll get to use the saw herself and help her daddy. tree hunt_0010

But until then we just go out in the fields and cut our trees…or three…down. tree hunt_0016

If you want to cry all you have to do is go back to 2009 and 2010 and see how much my little one has grown. It’s crazy how quick they go from a little baby to a toddler talking in full sentences. tree hunt_0019
