An Early Tree

Our Christmas tree is up!!!!
Yes, I know it isn't even Thanksgiving yet, but seriously. Thanksgiving is late this year. Also, we're leaving to go out of town (MN) on the 16th of December so we won't even get to enjoy it for the last week or so before Christmas. Soooo, no grief in the comments! :)

We went back to our "Pumpkin Patch" to cut down our own tree yesterday. It felt very Washington-y being amidst all those firs....except it wasn't raining. :)
We had the whole place to ourselves and had a great time despite being pretty chilly! Brendan was really holding out hope that it would snow, but it's just not that cold yet!

Here's some pictures of "the hunt" and "the kill". More to come on the finished product. I haven't gotten a chance to take pictures yet, but it's pretty much up and decorated!
Merry Christmas everyone! I mean, Happy Thanksgiving!

Aaaaaaaaaa, the Christmas Tiger!!! (another Papa-grandson game, of course)

Found our tree!

All the men took turns with the saw.

Killed it!

Thanksgiving is a great holiday and deserves it due. It is my second favorite right behind Halloween. The fishing is much better around Thanksgiving than it is around Christmas.

We go to the same farm to cut our tree down. You will notice when we do get it and post pictures from the day that the place is mobbed. If the pumpkin patch, I mean, Christmas tree farm doesn't even have their christmas stuff out yet, it does seem a bit early. But, I have to say, I'm totally pumped about getting all the Christmas fa-la-las out and up myself. And, I had a pretty fun time shopping for some gifts today too. So, enjoy the tree. Next week, ours will be up.
