We picked out our Christmas tree this afternoon. Another cool reason to live where we do, the Lions Club grows trees on private property under some power lines and for $25, you go hike around, find the tree you want, they come and chop the tree down for you and drive it back to the warming hut. You also get free hot chocolate, and the kids get marshmallows in theirs. Or if you are Sacha “Hot Choc with Mallows”. I think we got a good one. Getting it home was a little sketchy. We basically crammed it in the back of the new van because it doesn’t have a roof rack. We also had Alice in her first Snuggly outing. Until today we have always had her in her carseat either just as is, or snapped into her stroller. It was good that we figured out how to use the snuggly, or the fact that she is just now big enough to use it. Because the tree farm was quite hilly and rugged terrain.
I used to pick and chose carefully which photos I put on this blog and which ones I put on Facebook, usually putting more up on facebook. Now I think I am just going to both the same pics on both because I know some people read this but don’t have a fb account (Tina) and there are lots of people that see the pics on facebook that don’t read this.
Yesterday, we were in town for a breast feeding clinic appointment. We also got Alice’s passport application in. Don’t get me started on what a waste of time and money infant passports are, however, we did get a really cute passport pic for Alice. So cute in fact that when it was printed off, Andrew asked if he could get a 5x7 copy of it. I will scan it in and post it later.
