This weekend we finally made it to our local tree farm to pick up a Christmas tree! We thought about not getting one this year because we won’t be home a lot this holiday season, but I just couldn’t stomach the idea of not getting anything at all. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas without a tree! And this is the first year that Rylee can kind of comprehend everything that’s going on…so we just had to! I am a sucker for holiday traditions, and decorating the tree is at the top of my list. But Sam and I both agreed we’d get something small. The local place we visited definitely didn’t specialize in small! The trees were huge! But we did find one tiny guy that fit the bill in the very front. It was the first tree Rylee ran to….so obviously we had to have it. I think it was the smallest on the lot. But it was perfect. We brought it home and set it up on a box in our best attempt to have a “baby proof Christmas”. But we will see how that goes!
I just love this time of year. I only wish December would slow down! We take off for snowy Minnesota this week to visit Sam’s family. I can’t wait for Rylee to experience snow for the first time! I think some sledding and snow angels are in order!
Is it snowing where you are from!? Christmas in San Diego is not like Christmas in a lot of other places in the world. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to live in a place that had snowy winters! I love to visit it….but I think my bones are accustomed to warmer winters!
