It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Earlier this week we started a new family tradition: cutting down our own Christmas tree! For all of our past Christmases together as a family we’ve had fake trees, but this year we decided to make it a fun family outing and cut down our own. It was so much fun and the kids had a {blast}!

The kids’ 2013 ornaments – Turbo for Isaiah…

And Doc McStuffins for Eloise!

Ready to hunt down the perfect Christmas tree!

My little cutie!

My other two cuties!

We found it! The perfect tree!! Or is it a little too small?

“How about this one, Dad? It’s big!” – Isaiah

Finally, we found the right one. =)

Love this girl.

Victory! My two guys prevailed in cutting down our very first Christmas tree!

Time to get this baby home.

Setting it up!

Cutting the rope!

Adding the final ornaments.

Eloise put some on too.

It’s done! Our first real Christmas tree as a family!

And now on to another tradition we are starting this year: Elf on the Shelf!!

The kids love waking up each day to see what mischief “Elfis” has gotten into the night before!
And finally… here’s a picture of the outside of our house all decorated! Haha, just kidding. This is the house from one of our favorite Christmas films, Christmas Vacation. =)

All in all, it was a great day! The experience of finding and cutting down the perfect tree, bringing it home, and having hot chocolate and listening to Christmas music while we decorated it was a blast! It’s so fun to experience Christmas through the eyes of my children and I love watching them take in and enjoy this wonderful time of year!
