We always get this same sort of tree from our favorite local tree farm, Crest Ranch. I love trees that let the ornaments dangle and show themselves off. I always make Greg do a hero shot like this.
After we hunted over hill and dale for our tree, we turned our attention to Greg’s mother’s tree. We found it in pretty short order . . . in other words, she had picked it out and kept her eye on it while we were hunting. 🙂
Gage cut it down. And, then, he got his own hero shot.
Pretty proud of himself. He was still talking about it the next day. He was impressed that he had lifted a tree above his head and pretty sure his friends wouldn’t believe him. Greg helped him get it above his head but he held it there all on his own! What a kid.
Ruth was there too, tired from a sleepover the night before. She still managed to give me her patented “fake smile for the camera” smile.
I’m lucky to have such a great family. The Holiday season can be stressful and full of hectic hustle and bustle but at the heart of it is family moments like this one.
The final result:
P.S. Don’t worry about the snow falling . . . that’s just a special treat for the season from the good folks at wordpress.com. Hope you all enjoy it! Personally, I love it . . . no shoveling and we don’t have to cancel school!
