This morning Wayne, Charlotte and I met Erik, Sancha, Jacob and Brennan at Santa’s Christmas Tree Forrest to pick out our tree for this year. This was the first cold day we have had and, so, the BEST day to pick out a tree! What a NEAT place with so much to do we only managed a fraction of the activities after several hours. We started with the little petting farm and Charlotte especially liked the different varieties of Roosters. Then the kids bounded around in a HUGE pile of hay and had a blast falling into and throwing hay. We then walked through the “cut your own tree” forest where the kids had fun running around and hiding behind the trees. On the way back Brennan and Charlotte held hands – too sweet. Charlotte liked walking through the “pre-cut tree” area and touching the needles of all the (9) different tree varieties. She came up with some adorable faces! Other than picking out a beautiful Noble Fir for our house we walked through the plant shop, took a hay ride and waved to Santa and Mrs. Claus. Next year we will let Charlotte take a turn on the reindeer tractor ride and pony drawn cart. Oh, can’t forget to sit by the bonfire and make smores next year either!
