With that in mind, a family from Kalispell, Montana brings trees in every year and we have decided it's our tradition to go and help them make some Christmas booty by purchasing a tree from their lot.* The Robinson Tree Farm Lot is the friendliest, most helpful group of men I've ever met (ladies... you might check it out, if you're single! J/K).
Anyway... we brought our tree home and made an evening of it. I know I've already said it, but I'm just thrilled to have Lucas participate in a more active way this year. He's just darling and really wants to engage with us regarding all the activities we're participating in. He uses his words now, saying things like: Tree, lights, Jesus, Santa, Ho Ho Ho (expecting someone in the room to echo with, "Merry Christmas!") and Star! It warms my heart to see him learn so much about culture and tradition in our family.
|Lucas put a few ornaments on the tree, with Dad's help, of course.|
|"Lucas, you have to be careful with the ornaments. Please don't throw them."|
|Ta-Da! It's much prettier in person. How does a person take great photos of their Christmas tree!? Ugh...|
*The lot is near Nibley Golf Course, off 700 East in Salt Lake City. Oh! And they only take cash or check... just so you know.
