Oh, Christmas Tree!

Our day has been full of Christmas trees and football! 

We met Jason's family at the tree farm this morning to find the perfect tree for Auntie Liz and Uncle Kory's house.  We've had some warmer weather (it was 40 today) so we didn't have to bundle up and there was no snow - weird!

Amelia was so excited to find a tree - she led the way!

"Helping" Dad cut down the tree

"Hey guys, you forgot MY tree!"

We attempted to get a family picture for our Christmas card but this was the best we got:

It's growing on me but we aren't too sure that it is the picture we were looking for.  Uncooperative toddlers and babies who want to explore can make taking family photos challenging!

Liz and Kory came over and we had several frozen pizzas and buffalo wings and watched football.  Their team (Packers) played against Jason's team (Vikings) and it was close but in the end the Packers won.  My team (Bears) also lost today - in overtime.  Oh well!

This evening we put up our Christmas tree and a few decorations.

We don't have a lot in the way of decor and that's ok!  We have two small kids right now and we hope to get into a house sometime in the near future so we are happy to wait to get any decor to make sure it will work with the home we eventually have!

We have left our tree bare - only lights.  We aren't too sure how Joey is going to do with it this year so before we get it all decked out we want to make sure he won't be tipping it over every five seconds, ha! 

 It's starting to feel a little more like Christmas!  Now, if only we could get some SNOW!
