Cutting a Christmas Tree

Following our family tradition, we went and cut our own Christmas tree for the 3rd time in a row.  This year we did much better than last year – Jacob not only didn’t get scared but he was a big help.  He checked on Caleb and me regularly, pulled the tree most of the way back to the truck and offered to help me carry the bottle and blanky.

For my part, I had never hiked through a forrest with a baby on my chest, a blankie and a bottle in one hand and a six year old holding my other hand.  It was lots of fun and we didn’t slip on the ice even once!
