Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree… December 1, 2008

We spent the last 4 days in Pennsylvania with family.  My brother and sister-in-law started a Christmas Tree Farm 8 years ago and this was the first year they were able to sell trees.  We enjoyed helping them with their opening weekend.  I have lots of fun pics to share…


The trees…


The perfect tree. 🙂


The haywagon.  My brother rebuilt the wagon for the Christmas Tree Farm.  The girls enjoyed rides on the wagon as you can see below…


Leah and her cousins (Alyssa and Camille) on a ride.


Here’s hubby getting ready to throw a snowball at the girls.  Even though my brother’s farm is only 3 hours away, they get a lot more snow than we do.  Last weekend they got 20+ inches.  Leah LOVED the snow and played in it every day.


They had this sleigh out for decoration.  I learned that my Great Grandfather used to deliver mail in this sleigh.  It’s been handed down and now my brother has it.  Once he croaks – it’s mine.  Kidding…ha, ha!


Camille, Leah and Alyssa in the sleigh.  Cute!


When we weren’t selling trees, the girls enjoyed getting rides in the tree sleds.  My brother would pull them around with the four wheeler.  They loved it!  Love their faces!


Kami got in on the action with this ride.



The girls also enjoyed some indoor time making crafts with Grandma Karen and ice cream ornaments with Grandma Jackie.  By the way…that’s chocolate on her forehead.


Here’s Camille’s ornament.  She’s not a big fan of ice cream so she shared her’s with Kami. 

All in all we had a great time!
