This is admittedly after the fact, but so things have been lately on the blog. I'm clinging to the old adage "better late than never," rediscovered wisdom for a full-time working mom. We've had our tree up for about 10 days now, and so it seemed appropriate to share the pictures.
This is the Christmas tree farm we went to last year. Unlike last year, however, we left without a tree. They wanted $43 for a 5-6 foot tree, a price tag I just couldn't bring myself to pay when I knew of another place nearby -- less picturesque, but I'm not paying for atmosphere -- selling full-sized trees for $25. In the end we paid a cool $18, which makes me like the tree even more.
Of course, the main reason for trying out this particular tree farm again, was all its trains, from the wooden play one out front to the incredible model one set up inside, which we were told last year takes nearly 3 weeks to assemble.

In front of the finished product. A table top tree was advisable this year given Evie's current milestones and her propensity to eat all things inedible.
And this is what life is like as the youngest of three with two older brothers.
She is already one tough cookie.
Don't be concerned. She loves this. And so do they.
