Caroline and our Christmas tree

Today we put up our Christmas tree. It was a rainy day, so we were in no big hurry to get to it. We spent the day napping and finally this afternoon while Caroline was still taking a nap we got the tree in the house. Once Caroline got up, we took her down stairs and showed her the tree. Her response was, "Wow!" She helped us decorate it. Of course she didn't get the concept of the hooks on the ornaments, she mainly stuffed them into the branches, so we had to move them up when she wasn't looking. She was really cute with everything. Here are some pictures from today:

Christmas Tree Farm

On Friday we went to the Christmas Tree Farm with Adam, Kelsie, and Isabella as we always do. It has become an annual Christmas tradition. The girls rode together, and it was really sweet hearing them sing, and play in the back seat. Once at the farm, Caroline and Isabella were inseparable. They chased each other through the trees. Both loved the wagon ride, the boiled peanuts, and apple cider. Here are some pictures from the Christmas Tree Farm:
