Our trip to the Christmas tree farm! :-)

We went to a nearby Christmas tree farm today where you cut your own tree. It was really fun! They had wagon rides and hot chocolate while you wait for your tree to be shaken and tied. Teddy especially loved the wagon ride! He even ventured a quick pet of the horse. ;-)

Not a great shot of us, but the only one with all of us together...

Teddy headed straight for this tractor! Haha

My pictures ended up backwards order on here. Ha Oh, well.

Sawing the tree down....

The chosen tree. :-)

We have the tree mostly decorated, but we need to get some more balls or something to fill in with. The tree is big, so we don't have nearly enough ornaments. Ha I have two other small (fake) trees, so a lot of the ornaments got used on those. ;-)

I will take a lot more pictures soon of our house all decorated for Christmas and post those. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!

"O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon His name: make known his deeds among the people".
Psalm 105:1

I am so thankful to the Lord for the many, many blessings he has given me. Most of all I am thankful that he saved me as a 6 year old little girl! I am so thankful that I was raised in a Christian home, and was given the opportunity to receive the Lord as my Savior so early in life.

Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!

A Quote For Today :-)

I came across this quote in a book called "Storybook Cottages" by Gladys Montgomery:

" It often happens that some modest cottage, all chaste and simple and expressive, but in strictly correct taste and good keeping, awakens in our minds a far higher pleasure than the most costly saloon, bright with gilding, and rich with satin and velvet, where we only discover magnificence and expense without taste or propriety. We feel that there is some living spark of genius in the former, but in the latter- only unlimited credit at the banker's. "

- Andrew Jackson Downing, The Architecture of Country Houses, 1850
