As a BONUS birthday activity, we headed out to the tree farm with Grandma Mary and Papa Bob. Funny story-- you know how there's always that one family dragging a tree that is obviously to big for a normal house? That was totally us. Dave fell in love with our 'Rockefeller' tree, and it came home with us. We did have to cut a good 6" off the base for it to fit in the house...but it's beautiful! AND we had fun 'hunting' for it :-)
Grandma Mary, Alex and Kolachi enjoy the 'pre-game' fire.
Ready, set, go!

Our new tree.....on our NEW VAN. Did I forget to mention that we finally sold the old Odyssey and upgraded to a new one? We were the beneficiaries of a very generous 'mother's day' present that we've been waiting a LONG time to coordinate. I love it!
