Your Three Words

I am SO excited about this weekend, as we have a lot of big Christmas-related things planned. =)

Tomorrow, we are heading back to Linvilla Orchards to cut down our Christmas tree! This place is sooooo great. If you're not in the holiday spirit before you get there, then you will be. They have hayrides out to the Christmas tree farm, hot chocolate, reindeer, a fire for roasting marshmallows, a little shop with homemade deliciousness and crafty holiday decorations... and did I mention reindeer? It's just beautiful!

They're calling for sunny, but very chilly weather tomorrow which is a HUGE step up from last year's experience. ;) And let's not forget about the fact that we picked out a ginormous tree last year. Oops.

This is one of my favorite videos... Ever.
Our Griswold Family Christmas Tree

In my defense, I had no idea how huge it would be until we got it in the house. I guess when you're in the middle of a forest full of Christmas trees, the only real comparison is... well, other trees.

Lesson learned. Hopefully. ;)

And on Sunday, we're headed to see Santa! Can't wait. I know Brynn will be perfectly fine, but I'm a little worried about Carter. We keep discussing Santa at home and how he is so nice and how he brings gifts at Christmas {which Carter understands because he walks up to every Santa decoration in our house and asks for "a cool truck, thank you!"} I'm still a little worried that we will have a repeat of last year's visit:

Christmas most definitely is not complete without Christmas Vacation! I wish we had a place like Linvilla Orchards, it sounds awesome!

Toni said...

Sounds like a fun weekend! Have fun getting your tree, and good luck with Santa :) Can't wait to see the picture!

We're taking Jack next Friday. Should be interesting!

Have a blast getting your tree! That is our plan this weekend too...if we don't get all of the snow that they are predicting for us. :o/

Andrea said...

That video is hysterical!!

Becki said...

Sounds like fun. Tree cutting always has to happen on the coldest day of the year, right?

I think I remember watching that video last year and snorting coffee out of my nose! Hilarious.

Someday I want to go cut down a tree. Not this year, but probably next year when we're in a new house (God willing). And I will be thinking of your fat tree the entire time, I'm sure :)

We are also going to see Santa this Sunday. Heading over to good old KOP b/c the MIL claims he is the best one around here. Very interested to see how Mags reacts to the big guy!

Jenn said...

Oh have fun getting your tree!! I'm missing this tradition this year since we're going away for Christmas, so enjoy it for me too!

Jessica said...

That video is HILARIOUS! We have a fake tree so it is sized just perfect for our house. ;) Maybe one year we'll brave the Christmas tree farm.

Jill said...

Sounds like some wonderful memories will be made this weekend!

I joined your blog hop for the first time today. Thanks for hosting!
