Picking Our Tree

Due to some scheduling conflicts, we decided to go about choosing our Christmas tree a little differently this year. Yawn Station opened on November 19th for their regular season. We decided to go that day and choose our tree. We will go back soon to actually cut it down.  Stella found some fantastic gravel in the parking lot that she was really excited to show off...
Conspiring against me by refusing to look at the camera simultaneously...
More of that...
Thanks to another tree farm patron, we managed to get a family picture on the train...
My sweet baby...

Hollerin', as usual...
Cille and Daddy.  Daddy was a big fan of the fact that he wore shorts and a t-shirt to choose our CHRISTMAS TREE...

The girls showed me that the trees were THIS BIG!!!
Searching for the perfect specimen...
We found it!
Daddy and the girls in front of our tree...
That stick is not part of the tree.  Stella just has a fascination with sticks.  City girl...
Mommy and the girls in front of the tree...
Daddy took time to explain to Stella why we even have a Christmas tree in the first place.  Foreshadowing can be a difficult concept for a three year old, but I think he did a pretty good job...
Back on the train...
Cille chose her own seat...
Stella uses her mouth to make noises when she drives...
Cille just squeals a lot.  Remind me to make her wait to get her license...
Queen of the mountain!
Our little billy goat in action...

Monkey see, monkey do!
I may be partial, but isn't this kid gorgeous?
More tree pictures as soon as we go back and cut it down!

Stella looks so grown up here, especially in the picture with Mom & Cille!
