I mean, really. It’s almost March?? How is that even possible?
Tonight, Derek caught a glimpse of my desktop and commented on how much stuff is on it. I had to agree that it is looking a bit cluttered…
So I started taking a closer look at what’s on there and realized that I have pictures resized and saved on the desktop so I can blog about that time we went to the farm and cut down our own Christmas tree. Yes, it was 3 months ago, but I always like to think it’s better late than never.
It was our second annual Thurman Family Christmas Tree Adventure. We headed out to Dewberry Farm, which is a different farm than the one we had gone to the year before. It was really fun with lots of extra things for the kids to do, but the tree was more expensive and I didn’t really appreciate the black widow spider friend that I’m pretty sure came home with our tree. I’m not even sure I blogged about that. I still get the heebie jeebies just thinking about the huge web it built under our desk (a few feet from the tree) and the sound it made as Derek stepped on it, and then the horrible realization that he had just killed a large, poisonous spider. Yuck.
Anyway, one day many months ago, we loaded up the party van and headed to the farm.
We looked for quite awhile until we found the perfect tree.
And after a careful inspection, we knew this was it.
Camryn and I looked on as the boys did all the work.
And just like that, the Christmas tree hunt was over. I also can’t decide if I’m sad this shaggy hair gone or not. Connor’s hair is in a bit of a funny place right now…shorter than this, but not really short. I had forgotten just how long and shaggy it had gotten!
We were one big, happy family, all ready for Christmas (and, judging by the short sleeve shirts, all this fun stuff happened before the Winter That Would Not End settled upon us.)
I have way more pictures of this day, but apparently this is as far as I got in getting them blog ready. We did lots of the other farm activities and the kids played hard core for hours. It really is a fun place to go.
Minus the black widow spiders, of course.
And with this post, I will officially declare the Christmas season behind us. It’s time for spring. (Do you hear that spring?? Come on already!)
