Getting Dana's Christmas Tree

Dana and Lola

I am terribly behind on getting my family photos onto my computer. I finally uploaded a bunch last night.  Here are some shots from when we were up in New Hampshire earlier this month. Every year, since I was a little girl, we have always gone to my Uncle's farm to pick out our Christmas tree. It is such a wonderful experience. They have wagons (or sleighs if there is snow!) pulled by beautiful horses and the farm stand is full of delicious donuts they make right there and steaming hot chocolate that they offer free to all of their customers. Even though we couldn't get our tree there, (I don't think they would have let us on the plane with it), we did all help Dana pick out hers for her new apartment. My parents and Jamie and Josh had gotten theirs the week before. We had so much fun!

Poor Josh! It took forever to get the tree back to the loading area with Robert, Josiah, Luke and Lillie all helping him.

And now back on the horses...

and time for donuts!

Also, we finished decorating the porch! I am hoping to get some photos taken in the daylight today and either post pictures tomorrow or Friday.  I went for a different look out here than the rest of the house.

Happy Wednesday!

  2. Beautiful photos and what fun with your family!!The first time we were stationed in Ukraine, we had a hard time finding a tree in time for the 25th because they celebrate New Year's and then Christmas on the 7th. Our friend located one and then helped my husband bring it home on the metro! {we've seen it all on the metro!}

  6. Even your family outings look like a carefully thought out photo shoot. Love the girls' outfits and, of course, the surroundings were lovely. It looked like so much fun. I've put my order in to my newlywed children for a Lillie or a Lola or even little boys ;-). Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    My family has never had a real tree, but I like the idea of the traditional family drive to the farm to pick a tree out. So fun!

  17. Beautiful photos and wonderful traditions and memories you are creating for your daughters and family! It looks like a very fun filled day. I just love the photo of Josh with all of his little helpers following behind. Hope you are having a good week. It's so hard to believe that Christmas is just a few short days behind.
