Picking Out the Tree

The last few weeks have been fraught with one thing after another during the week and since Reagan is only with us weekdays, we have to make sure we continue family traditions during the week this year. The kids have had a lot going on with Scouts and Brownies too, and also Andrew's band concert and rehearsals.

This week we were finally were able to go and pick out our Christmas tree!

Lily is thrilled to just walk everywhere, so she roamed around checking out the tree selection.

 George and Andrew held up a few that we'd narrowed it down to. Andrew yelled out that he was the star.

Doesn't Andrew look absolutely thrilled to be holding up the tree? 

The kids accomodate my picture taking well...always.  I love being able to compare previous years to see how much the kids have grown and changed. We've been going to the same lot for our tree since 2007, when Andrew and I moved here.  My husband accomodates my desire for a live tree since I didn't have one growing up in Arizona despite being allergic to pine.  Love him!

Well almost always....

Finally we found what we were looking for!

Now to decorate....
