O Christmas Tree

Yesterday was Christmas Tree Day. The girls wrapped up their math work until after Christmas and we turned all of our attention to readying ourselves for our "field trip." The girls began Christmas Copywork Books and decided they would focus on Christmas carols this year. The song for today ~ O Christmas Tree . Here's Snuggle Bug's work :)

We read a couple of great books

Honeybee made this Christmas tree craft

Buck worked on his reindeer. He wants to hang it in the bag yard and use it for a target :/

Once Dad was home we headed out to the Christmas tree farm.

The weather was nice and cold - just as it should be :)

We all enjoyed the wagon ride down to see the reindeer!

You should have seen Buck eyeing these! He is a true hunter in the making!

There were lots of trees to chose from.

Buck helped his dad saw down this one - while all of us ladies watched :)

The sun was setting as my honey dragged the tree up the hill.

The complimentary apple cider was a most welcome treat! The gift shop had soooo many beautiful things to peruse as they got the tree ready and tied it to the top of the van.Once we were home, The House Cat, Snuggle Bug and Honeybee went up to the kitchen to bake some yummy cookies. They were sooo cute and good.
I loved the way the ornaments popped up off the trees when they were done. Too cute!

The excitement in the air was crazy! Or maybe it was the sugar?

Everyone agrees this is the most beautiful tree we've ever had. It is dark green and so soft. Visions of sugarplums?

Before bed I read aloud these two books telling where tinsel came from:)

It was a nice ending to a fun day!

What great fun! I remember going out with my Daddy and siblings to find just the right tree. We weren't on a tree farm just our woods, but we always found the perfect tree! Great Memories.
We love you all so much.
