It was pointed out to me this year by Emma and Josh that I usually ditch them and get our tree when they are not home. We made a point of picking a scheduled date to all get to go together this year.
Since we have moved we tried out a new place this year. Turns out the manager had babies that I LOVED and got to take care of when I was a nurse. What a fun small world. I hugged her so tight I about squeezed her head off.
The littles and I got there early and had a meet and great with Santa.
Josh and Emma met us and off we went on our tree hunt.
Piney Acres is a magical place. I have a not so secret dream that if I hadn't been a Nurse Practitioner I would have tried to start a pumpkin patch/tree farm. It's just so flipping cute and agri-fun. Josh would not have been suited for the intense amount of socialization that would have taken, so it worked out best that we just have a hobby farm. Still - every time we go to a place like this I try to talk one of the kids into why they need their own farm when they grow up.
Quinn felt like a big stud for cutting down the tree.
Our cozy little house looks very festive.
