O Christmas Tree

Two weeks ago we went out to Laingsburg to cut down our first ever real Christmas tree.  After years of using our artificial tree, I finally convinced Rob to get a real one.  We stopped at Tom and Becky's house before heading next door and had a very special visit with the family.  Maggie drank hot cocoa with Becky and demonstrated her Irish dancing skills for Tom.   The kids loved seeing the animals and riding in the big tractor pulled wagon to find our tree.  Maggie even helped Rob cut it down.  I am so excited to begin family traditions that will continue as we celebrate Christmas in Michigan for years to come. 
Merry Christmas everyone!!
