Tree Trimming

This year Olivia got to go tree shopping for TWO Christmas trees! What a lucky little girl! Last week, Dennis and I took her to Holloways which was tons of fun. I had never been there before and didn't realize the pre-cut trees were propped up in water troughs. I saw a sign that said something like, "Watch out for the water troughs" and the next thing I remember Olivia's entire foot was in one. She had water up to her ankle. At least now I know for next time!

This past weekend, our whole crazy family (minus Uncle Matt) went to Avila Valley Barn to pick out my parents' tree. While we were there, we saw a nice tree but it was missing a was sort of just flat on the top instead of pointy. Well, don't ask me why but for some reason we thought it would be a good idea to get that tree. I think we thought we could cover it up with my mom's angel tree topper. We brought it home and then realized (with help from my brother) that our tree is sort of sad looking without a top. hahahahaha. We're nuts. Here are some pictures from that experience.

Olivia loved handing me ornaments to put on the tree. She took her job very seriously.

My mom made tiramasu. Olivia is in heaven in the picture below.

Don't be jealous of this next picture. Dennis and I were getting romantic with the lights. hahahaha.

I had a video from last Christmas of you and Dennis fighting about putting "my first christmas" ornaments on the tree and it was really funny cause you had no idea I was filming. Wow how time flies! See you Saturday!!! I'm excited!!!

Looks like you guys had so much fun! We got our tree from Avila Vally Barn and when we got it home it fills our hole living room it's huge! I'm not sure what we will do about that! Anyway I miss you little Livi and hope to see her really soon!
