Our Christmas Tree Hunt, 2013

After my nice, long run on Saturday morning, and a couple of hours for Ben in back working with Randy on the rink, we got ourselves ready for the hunt.  Our Christmas tree hunt.  It's a little early, yeah, but it's the only weekend we could do it!  It turned out to be a great day.  It had been cloudy and foggy in Montrose for the past two days, but once we started climbing in to the woods, we had blue-bird skies.  It was great!

 There was plenty of snow to make it hard for Lucy to walk in.  :)

 So pretty.

 Snow angels.

 Ben, saw, and little Lucy in the sled.

 And there she is - our Christmas tree!

 Lucy was cute and was very interested as Ben sawed down our tree.

 Snow babes.  :)

We tried to go to the 4:30 showing of Frozen.  But after standing in line for about 10 minutes, the tickets had sold out (we had finally made it to the ticket counter - bummer!).  I was really bummed, but felt even more bummed for our kids.  They were sad, but were fine.  So instead of watching a movie, it gave us time to decorate our tree.  Fun!  The kids were all excited about the ornaments.  And here is our lovely, wild, decorated tree:
 Lookin' good.  :)

It looks much better without the flash, but a little blurry.  I needed a tripod.  Anyways, I love our tree!

Happy December 1st!
