Christmas TREE Picking!!!

Today we went to pick out our Christmas tree. Well, that was after the boys played with and then figured out where to put all their new toys from Chanukah last night. It was a nice little drive to the same Christmas tree farm we went to last year, Seiler Farms and going earlier this year gave us more options on trees than last year. And of course the boys had fun running around looking at all the trees until we picked the perfect one. Although daddy and I had different ideas on which one was perfect. Of course, we ended up with mine and it looks beautiful! We always manage to pick a freezing day to pick out our tree, which in San Antonio, Texas, is a pretty difficult thing to do! Today definintely wasn't the coldest Christmas tree trip we've made but we all were bundled up nicely for the 58-62ish degree weather we were wondering around in. After we agreed on our perfect tree daddy got started sawing it down and then each of the 3 boys had a turn "sawing" too. Logan is probably tht only one that really did any actual sawing but CJ and little Wyatt got down and tried too.
Even Wyatt got to help cut the tree!

Then it was time to get the tree loaded up and the boys ate the candy canes the lady that worked their gave to them while mommy and daddy got the tree ready to go. Wyatt needed another nap when we got home which worked out well so that Logan and CJ got to help me decorate the tree. Then I put all the presents out underneath... fingers are crossed all 3 boys will listen and none of the presents will get opened! Logan is under strict instructions that if he sees one of his brothers even touching the presents he is allowed to tattle and be BETTER come tell mommy or daddy. Luckily Logan is pretty much always the first to get up and doesn't take naps so he's the best to keep an eye on the tree HeHe :)
