Our New Little Family Tradition

So for the past 3 years Sean has wanted to go to a Christmas tree farm and do the whole old fashioned pick and cut thing for our tree...I was NOT having it!!! I had my great big 9ft beautiful artificial tree that I just loved and i didn't want all the mess that comes with real trees!! Well.....this year we moved into a new house and my tree was too tall :( so I gave in and let Sean have his way!! I looked online and found a tree farm in our area and this afternoon we loaded up  the two older kiddos and took off to the tree farm!!! They were both so excited! We got there and they took off running through the trees saying "oh this one " and "oh that one". After browsing around for a bit they finally found one that met mommy's approval!! They cracked up at daddy cutting it down and thought that was the neatest thing!! The farm had a moonwalk and while we paid for the tree and got it loaded they played with 2 other kids in the moonwalk!! After seeing how much fun they had and how much they enjoyed it, I wish we would have started this sooner....but after todays experience I am pretty sure this will be a new family tradition in the McDonald household!!!

The search has begun!!

This was Shane's pick lol!!!

And this was Rylei's pick!!

And this was "the keeper"!!!

I also got a few pics of them playing in the moonwalk and the tree loaded and tied on my car but it is just taking too long to upload tonight for some reason!!!

Turkey Day 2010

We had a great time this year for Thanksgiving. Sean's family decided to kinda lay low and everyone just did their own thing. We spent the day at my Aunt Angie's!! My sister and her family came and that was nice! I sent Sean at 7:30 am to get the sale paper so I could start planning my Black Friday shopping trip!! After lunch Sean headed off to the deer lease and I rested up for an all nighter!! I started at about 6:30 pm that night and shopped until about 9am!!! I hit every store from Toys R' Us to JoAnn's!! I went with my cousin  (in law) Heather and it was good times!!! Black Friday is a tradition for's alot of fun even though it definitely has some crazy moments!! It's not so much about the sales ( although there are some great ones) for me it's just a fun thing to do and it's like the kickoff to the Christmas season!!

I made all 3 kids a turkey shirt but I didn't get a picture of Trent wearing his :( it looked just like Shane's!! They all looked so cute...but as you can almost always guarantee, they all got stains on them!! ah, the joys of having small kids!!! gotta love em'!!!
