The kids had so much fun running around the many acres of beautiful scenery. I smiled as I watched them enjoying the simple things in life. Some day I would love to get another place in the country, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. What a wonderful place to raise kids.
Once we could all agree on which tree to take home Dustin showed David how to cut it down. I can't believe how fast my little boy is growing up. There was a day when I would have NEVER put a saw in his hands, but he was so mature and cut it down all by himself.
Okay, so once we got the tree down to the car I noticed how small it was. It reminded of the Charlie Brown Christmas movie. When I found out that we were going to get a real tree this year I had imagined a big, beautiful noble fir, and as the tree sat atop our little car I had to laugh.
I told some friends about our tiny tree. Joy said that once I got the decorations on it, it would look big and beautiful just like Charlie Brown's did. So, I put our little tree on a box to give it a little stature, and the kids and I covered it in lights and ornaments. You, know, Joy was right!
