Christmas Tree Shopping

To continue a tradition that we started last year, we went to cut down our tree today. Mya was much more excited about it this time around and was quite taken by the snow. She didn't want to really hold our hands though so she would run away and slip and fall on the ice and snow which resulted in her jacket, hands, pants and Adam's gloves getting dirty with mud. Oh well! I think she had a good time.

The hardest part was trying to find a tree that would fit inside our low ceilinged living room. Last year we had really high ceilings so we could choose whichever tree we wanted but this year we kept saying "well, how big do you think it is?" and "Adam, go stand next to it to give me an idea". We think it'll fit but if not, worse case scenario we just have to chop a few branches off the bottom and saw off a few inches. We think we found the perfect tree and I'm so excited to put it up tonight! Stay tuned for pictures of the finished product!
