Our 2013 Christmas Tree

This past Saturday, we went to our favorite little tree stand, that we've gone to every year since we got married, and picked out our 2013 Noble Fir.

Jackson went along with us for the second year, and though he was more interested in the playground at the daycare behind the tree stand than in picking out a Christmas Tree, we found a beautiful tree and even got a few cute pictures while we were there. I am so bummed though, because I had one of the men there take a family picture of us with our tree and when I got home and started looking through them on the computer, I accidentally deleted it off my memory stick. :-( It didn't go in to my recycle bin either, so I guess it's just gone forever. Oh well, I got some cute pictures of Jackson, so I guess that will have to do. 

I wish he was showing me the trees here, but he was wanting me to follow him to where we could see the playground. ;-)

Jackson checking out the little bit of snow that was on the ground that day.

We brought it home that day and set it up in a bucket of water in our garage over night and then we brought it in and decorated it Sunday evening. 

Jackson helping to decorate the tree. :-) BTW, this didn't last long, so I'm glad I got a picture when I did. ;-)

And our 2013 Christmas Tree all decorated. It smells oh so good and Jackson got excited when we turned the lights on this morning. :-)
