our charlie brown christmas tree

saturday, b took k, a, and f to cut down our very first ever real christmas tree. i was at home with m who was throwing up. great fun for me. we got the kids all ready...outfitted the night before...and they looked so warm. especially f who was sporting his all blue byu gear! he's so cute.


they met up with some friends in the ward who were all going to cut down trees together. they hiked through thigh high snow, pulled little ones on sleds, all to find the perfect trees. a couple hours after they left i got a call from b asking me where i wanted my tree. i told him in the piano room. to which he replied...i don't think i will fit. and he was right. so we put the fake tree in our room and put the real one in the living room. it's the best charlie brown tree ever! i love it. thanks, hon! you and the kids did such a great job.


while they were gone m took a super long nap. and i got my christmas cans done. i don't know why but whenever i make something my first thought is...make them all match. and then something happens in the making process and i change my mind. i need to remember that i like them all to match! oh well. next time. i think they turned out really cute. i even made one for leah my sil. we have her for christmas and will fill it with lots of presents for her. i am excited. m is all better now and happy that she is feeling better.

last night for fhe we read from our christmas advent book. but before we read i gave all the kids their christmas pillowcases so they could lay on the floor by our tree and be comfy. they were so cute with their pillows. it made me happy. christmas makes me happy.

Love your tree - I really love trees with character - why can't you buy fake trees like that?
Hope M is feeling better soon.

The Christmas cans are great. Maybe you could post a pic of your pillowcase handywork. I'm sure your kids LOVED them. They'll sleep better on Christmas Eve on them I'm sure!! Have a happy day.
