Christmas Tree Hunting

Christmas time means Christmas tree hunting! One of my favorite traditions.

Preston's an old pro, but this year was Olivia's first year tree hunting.  It's just not as exciting when you're not quite six months old as it is when you're six years old.  Poor Livs rode in the Ergo and watched while her big brother got to race around and have all the fun.

My parents!


The trek up the hill.  Olivia never feels heavier than when I'm walking uphill with her!


My boys...and the trees!


We found our Christmas tree!  Daddy and Preston are the ones who actually found it and they did good!


Our family.  Our tree.


Oh these two!  I love our littles!



Brad and Preston hard at work!


Brad and our babies!


Me and our babies!


The long walk back down the hill with our tree!


While Brad and Preston dragged our tree down the hill, I headed through the trees to find my parents and their tree.


While we waited for the tractor to come back up and get us all to bring us back down we took more photos.  Shocking right?

Grandpa and Grandma and the grandkids!


Family photo!


Me and my girl!  Grandpa was getting her to give all the big smiles!


Just like a boy.  When we headed over to pay for our tree, Preston climbed a tree.  And then got stuck.  And had to be rescued.  We'd kind of like to keep him!


Now comes the hard part. Putting it up and decorating it!

Photos With My iPhone Week 25

Apparently just the one this week! With Thanksgiving and everything going on it was hectic.

Thanksgiving 2013

Thanksgiving! One of my favorite holidays!

You guys it's a holiday of food. What's not to love?

We arrived and Jessie snagged Preston for a photo.


And Grandma Mona snagged Olivia for some snuggles!


The big kids all having fun in the play room!  I absolutely love this photo! 


I tried to get my big boy to take a photo with me.  This was the best of it. He was busy and had people to play with.  No time to take photos with his Mama!

 
Olivia eventually got exhausted and passed out.  So I handed her to Brad so that I can make myself a plate of appetizers!  Because food.  Also I will be soooo thankful when No Shave November is over.  Because that hair on his face.  No bueno.


The Williams Men watching the game!


Me and my love!


And all the facial hair.  I mean seriously.  You almost can't see him under there.

Livs loving on Auntie Jessie!  Even Colten was getting in on making faces to get Olivia to smile.  Marrissa not so much.


My husband.  Refusing to smile.  Because he thinks he's so funny.  And all that facial hair.  At least my baby looks adorable!


Olivia get some loves from Aunt Kristin!


Mama's turn!


I swear Preston was there too.  He just was busy.  Playing.  Not taking photos.  Apparently that's what happens when kids get older.  They decide playing is so much more fun than taking photos!  What is that.

Livs was not the only one who napped at Thanksgiving.  Colten got tired too.  All that food.


I may have forced everyone who couldn't sneak past me to stop and take a photo together before they left. 


Preston was willing to take a photo with Alyse!  Because he seriously just loves her so much! 


Mason wasn't so much feeling the whole photo thing!  Ha!


Us "kids" taking some photos.


We are so awesome.  Also notice that in the last one Marrissa and I are posing the exact same way.  Just by chance.  She's possibly the younger version of me. 

We even took one with a spot for Shannon! 


These two!  My heart!


The boys with Uncle Matt! 


My Grandpa doing some wrestling with Preston!


My family!  Loves!


We had a fabulous holiday! One that I even got to finish with some Black Friday shopping! It was a great day!
