Nick and Sophie's Tree

Last Saturday I flew up to Portland to see Nick, Sophie and their dad John.  It was a crisp day in the mid to high forties.....just perfect to go find a Christmas tree!    Here is Nick trying to find the best one....

  ......and now Sophie has made her choice!

John had Nick help saw it down....

.....and then carry it up to the "shaker"  (what a fun machine to watch as it shakes all those old needles out)  
...and here is the result!  We actually got TWO trees.....this one for all Megan's special ornaments and the other one to be in the family room with ones that can withstand playing children.  I helped them decorate the house too!  Christmas brings so many memories of their Mom and we talked a lot about her favorite things during the season.  I was so glad I could be there!

Here are a few more Christmas touches from my house....Santas are everywhere.

I hope that you are enjoying the blog hop.  Today was Ali Strebel's day to host.  She has a fun rug hooked ornament and a yummy recipe for you to try.

Hope you had a wonderful 12/12/12......we went out for pizza to celebrate!
