We went to pick out a Christmas tree with my parents this morning! My parents buy a real tree every year. Justin is a bit of a scrooge and doesn't want us to put one up since my parents do one upstairs. Oh well I guess! One day. Ali didn't want to be put down when we got there (I guess she was nervous or claustrophobic?) but Molly was telling us which ones she thought we should buy. "We should buy this one!"
We finally convinced Ali it was ok and she walked around with us for awhile.
It was quite the adventure! I think the girls had fun!
Here's the tree!
It was a successful outing! Justin was playing football with some friends this morning, so that's why you don't see him.
Just for fun, here's a few things I love about this time of year:
Sweater time and layering
Fires and blankets
Peppermint ice cream (well, peppermint anything!)
Chocolate covered cinnamon bears
Being with family and friends
Focusing on the Savior
I saw on someone's blog their list of favorite Christmas movies. Here's mine in no particular order:
Home Alone (it's just a classic)
While You Were Sleeping (ok so maybe it's not really a Xmas movie, but to me it is!)
