way back on december 1, we made our annual trip to cut down our family christmas tree. the boys picked out a beauty.
owen's favorite part was the tractor ride out to the trees. he remembered it very well from our trips to the pumpkin patch, and was only concerned with getting right back on one after we got off.
this also began his season long love of sleighs (and rudolph, too, because someone has to carry that sleigh!). these two played on this sleigh for quite some time while we waited on our trees to be shaken and wrapped.
it was our lucky day because santa was at the farm. we tried for our token picture with santa, but owen wanted nothing to do with his lap. surprisingly, though, he didn't hesitate to sit on mrs. clause's lap. such a funny kid. no smile, but an improvement from last year!
