This weekend was filled with our holiday traditions. Thanksgiving was spent with both sides of my family. Partaking in not one Thanksgiving meal, but TWO! Yes we were stuffed!
Then the day after Thanksgiving bought our annual trip to the tree farm and lunch with Gram's, PaPa and my sister's and their family, along with my cousin Brad.
It was a beautiful, crisp day to hunt our perfect tree. Not to fat, not to thin and little holes to "hide" the ornaments. This year we decided to get a taller one.
We even had to climb on a ladder to reach the top. But I think it looks beautiful.

I miss the smell of real Christmas trees, not to mention the yearly search for the perfect one. Your home looks beautiful all Christmasy!
