Rick and I love the Holiday Season. We love it all. We could hardly wait for Thanksgiving to be over with so we could go get our Christmas Tree. This year we went to the Little Bear Tree Farm in Alta, CA. It was amazing. It was this tiny little place with hardly any parking but they provide such a fun experience.
Who let Rick have the saw?????
They take you part way up the mountain to the tree farm in these renovated Willys trucks. Then you pile in and they take you back down to measure the tree.

There is a huge bonfire going so it makes the air a little smokey. I couldn't resist the way the light was cutting through the trees.

Caroline the tigress took some time out to master the monkey bars...
while sitting on my head.
Loaded up and ready to go.
We could hardly wait to get home and start decorating. The problem is, none of us brought a tape measure to measure the tree before we cut it. So we ended up with a short tree. But it is still beautiful!
We have definitely started a new family tradition.

Gill enjoyed his pear from the tree in the back yard.
Uncle Aug, Caroline and Rick
My aunt Sheri was a HUGE help. She made the gravy...which I had no clue how to do.
My Grandma Bel was there too! She helped me to keep a level head and reminded me that she loved me even if it wasn't perfect.The sweetest Grandpa in the whole world.
My husband...AKA TURKEY NINJA
I don't know if you can really see the progression of these pics, but it was really funny
And turkey was perfect!

While the men were working on the swing set my friend Shawn and I took the kids over to my grandmothers to do some yard work. I brought plenty of princess dresses and crowns and so Caroline and Angelena immediately dressed up. At first their play was innocent. They played on the bridge like any other princess would.
