A Very Griswold Christmas

Last saturday, we decided to have a family
activity. We wanted to do something special because
it was our first weekend all-together after 2
very long weeks. So we decided to go to
one of the local tree farms in WNC and
cut down our own Christmas tree.

Here is Xander striking a pose.

My little Ethan Andrew. He was so excited to chop
down our very own tree.

Best friends.

Our two escapees. Larry said go
find a tree and I suppose they thought we had to go to
the top of the hill.
I don't think so.

Look at how beautiful the trees are.

So what goes up, must come down.
Check out my Belle as she makes her way
quickly down the hill. Her feet are literally
off the ground in this shot.

She is starting to loose her balance.

Catastrophe is happening.

Crash

Boom

Wah! Luckily the ground was very soft from
all the rain. Honestly, she whimpered for a moment.

Look at the snow covered mountains.
It actually snowed on our drive to the tree
farm but quit when we got there.

I just love this scene. Looks like it could make
a wonderful little puzzle.

My entourage. You can never have them all
happy at the same time.

A father daughter moment.


Our tree minus any squirrels.
At $8 a foot, we tried to keep it fairly modest.

All the kids took a turn at
sawing the tree down.



Timber!

Pure delight.



Our family tree.

Somebody has a secret. She is so spoiled.
Larry bought her some candy while in the
store.

A happy little girl.

We wish everyone a very Grizwold Christmas.

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say,
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day,
That's the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway,
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright,
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night,
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii's way
To say "Merry Christmas to you."
