It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!!

I love the holidays and all the preparations so much!  We went on Saturday to pick out our Christmas tree.  We met my dad, my Uncle, Lyndsay, Dallon, Ryan and Ella so it was a big group of us.  We went to the same tree farm we have been going to for the past few years.  We all picked out our trees then we took the big kids on a tractor ride around the farm.  My dad took Walker over to the petting zoo while we rode the tractor. After the tractor ride the kids roasted marshmallows around the fire.  It was a very cold but fun day.

These 3 were very excited to see each other!

Cute boys!

Trees!!!  We don't cut our own down.  The kind of tree I like is pre cut but they have tons to choose from.

Bundled up and ready to go

Walker got pulled around the petting zoo with my dad while we rode the tractor.  Think he is comfortable!?

After we picked out our trees we all went out to lunch.  Then it was time to go home and decorate which is one of my favorite things to do!  

Excited about our tree

and amazed :)

Bennett loved helping me decorate the tree while listening to Christmas music and drinking hot chocolate.

Our tree!  I love it!

Later that night we went out to dinner and then met up with my sister, Dallon, Ryan and Ella again.  We wanted to see the tree lighting and Santa.  It was supposed to start at 6 and when we were walking up at 5:45 they were counting down to the lighting of the tree and 1 minute later Santa came and went.  It was pretty anti climatic and disappointing since in years past Santa sang songs and hung around for a while.  Oh well the kids still had fun!

Here comes Santa...

and there he goes!

We walked over to an even better and bigger tree close by and these sweeties held hands while we walked!

Love these 3!

This little guy hung out in his stroller the whole time!

It was a very busy day but such a fun one.  Christmas is a lot more fun with kids and Bennett is so excited about everything!
