tree hunt 2009

I am officially on Christmas Holiday now and can get back to blogging (posting and reading!)
here is a belated post from thanksgiving weekend, 2009...

we're going on a tree hunt, a tree hunt, a tree hunt to see what we can find...

for several years now we have cut our own trees down, and for the past 3 years we have done so at my grandparents place.

one of my favorite parts of the experience is the interaction between my boys and my grandfather - their great-grandfather. they adore Paw, and always insist that he go with us on the Tree Hunt.

I am so very, very grateful for these memories. I am so grateful that my children have had the opportunity to know their great-grandparents so well, and that they are old enough to hide these memories in their hearts forever.

This picture perfectly sums up Miles and Meme's (my momma) relationship.
Playful and spirited till the in.
Love it!

After some searching, we found this beautiful "charlie brown" fairy tree.

I love the spread of the branches. So airy and whimsical...

(don't you just love a man who chops down tree's while donning a fedora?)

Wylie brings up the rear, helping Daddoe carry it back.

Home at last, resplendent and bedecked in all our Christmas finery, our little fairy tree lights up the living room.

welcome Christmas!


  1. I love your tree! Simply beautiful :)

  2. What a blessing to have several generations together for getting the tree. It looks beautiful.

  3. That tree is splendid!! Oh my gosh, I just about lost my breath!! Just gorgeous!!

  4. I think that is the most beautiful christmas tree I've seen this year!
