Today was shopping day, and I'm back on schedule :o) I did the grocery shopping and picked up a few extra sets of lights for the tree!
For years, our tradition has been to load up the kids in the car, Christmas music playing, and to head out to Pick-A-Pine to find the perfect Christmas tree. We'd scour the fields for the perfect tree, and McStudly would cut it down. Then, we'd have hot chocolate and popcorn while we waited for them to clean and wrap the tree for the trip home!
This is a picture of our last trip - Pick-A-Pine closed in 2009. We look back on our Pick-A-Pine days with the kiddos with such joy - I tell ya!
But, the kids are getting older, and have busy lives - so last year, McStudly and I went to a new place without the kids, to get our tree:
Which brings me to our Christmas Giveaway. Here are the items I'll be giving away:
You have 3 chances to enter this year!
Entry 1 - Which is our new tradition?
I love guessing games - and thought this would be fun! Which of the following will we be our new Christmas tree tradition?
A. I'll ask the kids to come and help us decorate, and make hot chocolate and popcorn (it's the closest we'll get to the original)!
B. We'll decorate the tree, and have a floor picnic with home-made pizza and Italian beer, and admire our work.
C. We'll decorate the tree, and have an intimate, gourmet dinner, with a nice bottle of wine and our finest dishes!
Post a comment telling what we'll be doing for our new tradition (A, B or C).
