Trimming the Tree

Let's get this party started!!

This is the tree when we started!!

This is serious business!!

Man, Kaiden gets to reach to all the cool places!!

I'm not to sure I like this picture!

The final product!!
Man, I was so excited to get the tree home and decorate it!!! I wasn't really sure what we were supposed to do, but since Kaiden is excited, I knew I was supposed to be excited!! So. . we came home, Daddy and Kaiden carried the tree in, and we got to work!! (If you want to know the real truth. . .we had to wait a while because Purdue was playing on t.v . and daddy had to watch some of it before he went and got the box of all the ornaments!!--can you believe that!) We barely started and then we realized we did not have enough lights so we had to wait some more for mommy to go and get lights from the store. When she got back and finished putting all the lights on, we finally got to work!!

Look at the Reindeer!!

Let the Holidays Begin!!!

Well, everyone . . . it is officially Christmas time!!! And the first thing we did was cut down our own Christmas Tree!! It was lots of fun!! Let me tell you all about it!! First we rode a wagon all the way back to where the trees are. That was fun, but the funniest part was when Mommy almost fell off when the horses started going. They can get going pretty fast!! Next we got to see SANTA !!! After that we got to see real reindeer!! They didn't like us until we gave them apples then they LOVED us!! After that, we went and found a tree. Next, Daddy had to cut it down and drag it back to the road. Then we threw it back on a wagon and rode back to where our car was. The best part was the end. After we got the tree situated we went inside a barn and got donuts and hot chocolate!!! (Which might I say. . .hot chocolate is way to hot!!!! I am more of a room temperature chocolate kind of girl!) After we ate we took the tree home and started decorating!!! I can't wait for Christmas!!!

These are the horses that are so strong, Mommy almost fell off the wagon when they started going. Hee Hee!!

Here he is. . .the one and only. . . SANTA!! Although Kaiden says that this is not the real Santa, just a helper! Hmmm. . .I wonder how Kaid nows this. . .

Wow! Look at these guys!! They were very hungry!!

And. . . TA DA. . . here's our final pick!!

Happy Hunting!!

During this trip down to Indiana for Thanksgiving, Matt got an idea of what it feels like to be a manly hunter!! :) He went with his dad, uncle and grandfather, while they went hunting. He didn't actually hunt because an out-of-state license was way to expensive!!!! So he just went and watched. He had a fun time (if you call sitting in the cold, completely quiet, fun). :)
