December Daily: 12-1

It's back.  I plan to attempt to do December Daily again this year (although there probably won't be daily posts).  The goal or aim of this project is not to record all the days events but just one story a day.  It can pertain to the holiday season or not--my choice.  As I have a bunch of things planned for the season I imagine most of my posts will center around Christmas.

December 1: Getting the Tree--We went yesterday morning to get our Christmas tree.  The high temperature yesterday was in the upper 70's so it didn't feel to much like Christmas.  But it was nice not to be freezing.  When we arrived at the tree farm, one of the workers asked if we had been there before; we had.  The guy then asked if we needed a refresher on how everything worked.  

Troy's response, "We walk around for a bit looking at the trees pretending like we'll cut a fresh one and then decide we like the pre-cut ones better and come back up here to pick one out."  

The guy laughed and said, "Yep, that's how my family does it too."  Glad to know we're not the only ones.

It was fun walking around among the trees with the kids.  This obviously was Hannah's first time getting a tree and she did great.  We opted to carry her rather than take the stroller--she's getting heavy!

We were home about an hour and a half after we left with our perfect tree.
