A Christmas Themed Sunday
We went to Guse's Christmas Tree Farm in Wanatah today to chop down our tree. Sammy and I have been getting real trees every Christmas we have been together. The first tree was $15 and we had to basically lie, cheat, and not eat for a week to get it. The best of times. Today we can pick the 8ft tree and buy the fresh popped popcorn. The kids even got to see Santa and take a train ride.
We decorated the tree and I spray-painted some pine cones I collected from my biggest pine tree, and from my mom's row of pines.
You can pretty much use the photos below as a tutorial to make your very own pine cone ornaments. They can also be used as a way to spruce up your gift wrapping. Get it...SPRUCE!
The kids did their own tree decor and we finished the afternoon with some warm milk.
