Our Mountain Adventure

For the first time, we decided to go to the mountains and choose and cut our Christmas tree.  We got a cool package with the hotel room and tree.  (remember that time after Disney we said we weren't going to stay all in one room together ever again? Yeah, we are never doing that again!)  Lee, Sara, Samuel, and Lillian had come into Boone to get their tree.  We were going to go out and explore and grab dinner, but it was raining.  Instead we got dinner and ate in our room.  They headed back out and it was movie and popcorn time for us.  We finally got back in the room and everyone settled.  When we got up the next morning it felt like 18 degrees :( We bundled up, headed to the tree farm, quickly chose our tree and got out of there.  It wasn't exactly the dream I had but you can't change the weather :-\  We will be doing it again next year though because it was fun and the tree smells awesome!

Not our tree, but it was the first one we saw and snapped a pic

The boys liked the bitty trees
