Our First Day

Of our Christmas celebration we went and hunted for the perfect tree. On Sunday we all loaded into the van and headed up to Loch Lolly tree farm. We have been going here since Meghan was born. We have missed a couple of years to try new places, but this is our favorite. It was the perfect weather to get a tree. Nice, a little cold, but not wet or raining.
Here is Meghan ready to start finding the perfect tree.
Kassidy sizing up the trees. She wanted to make sure we got the right size.

Meghan and Alison posing for me. I think Alison had a good time, at least I hope she did.

There is a lot of discussion that goes into getting the right tree.

Found the right one, now to cut it down. Meghan got to hold the tree, while Joey told Dad what to do. Joey loved bossing Daddy around.

Kimy, Joey and Daddy carrying the tree back to the Van.

Now to get the tree on top of the van....this is where I have to put the camera down to help.

Meghan sitting on Santa's lap.

Joey with Santa....he wished for the Saint's to go to the Superbowl.

Kimy with Santa. Kassidy will not sit on Santa's lap. She has not for a while now, so there is no picture of her on Santa's lap. We all had a blast and got to drink hot chocolate by the fire. Then we headed hope to put the tree up. Pictures of that tomorrow.
