.tree getting.

Every year, Eric and I go with his and his uncle's family to a u-cut tree farm in Monroe, MI. It's a lot of fun and utterly exhausting, just like any good family tradition is. His young cousins revel in the chance to run through the trees, Eric often chasing them (I think he spent more time with his cousins than he did with me).

Once we all pick out our trees (his aunt and uncle are always first, he and I always last) and have them bound, we head to the big barn to get snacks and a hot drink.

This year was just as wonderful as the past few have been. We picked a lovely blue spruce this year. I can't wait to get it in the house. We brought it home on Sunday, but won't be putting it up until Saturday afternoon. Eric's busy work/school schedule is very prohibitive when it comes to projects like these.

Do you get a tree for your house? Do you prefer natural or fake trees?

Completely irrelevant to the post but...the second pic, of your husband pulling up his pants? LOL. My husband does that constantly. Is that a man thing? It's like a preparatory gesture. "Ok doll, I'm going in. Stand back!"

Sorry, it just made me laugh ;)

Hahaha! So true. He does that all the time, mostly because most of his pants are too big for him these days and he hasn't bothered to get any new pairs :) So funny!
