The Perfect Tree

The quest for the perfect tree began early Saturday morning!! Every year we eat at IHOP and go pick it out!! The rest of the weekend is filled with cookie and candy house making, decorating the rest of the house too!

Poor Lillian wasn't feeling too hot. She was a trooper though.

Hmmm...what about this one??
This one?
I think Landon has a future Christmas break job when he gets older!! He kept picking up trees all by himself!!!

All the "stuff".

So much fun!!! They did a great job. We haven't even broken any ornaments yet. Or at that I know of at least...amazing. I'm sure one or two will bite the dust by the end of the month!!!

Now my Christmas Spirit is in full swing. I have to say, it took a little longer this year. Maybe it's because Thanksgiving was so late. I didn't have any time to ease into the season. But it's here now and we're enjoying it! And now that EVERY weekend is entirely booked up, it'll fly by even faster!!! SLOW DOWN TIME!!
