This was our fourth year going with the Gunnels family to cut down our Christmas trees. It's been fun to see how both of our families have changed over the past four years. Last year, Laura was pregnant with August and we were dreaming of taking our two boys together next year, and this year, August was with us and we're awaiting Julianne joining us next year. I'm looking forward to watching our kids in the coming years, running and playing together at the farm, giddy with excitement over choosing a tree.
^ Elliott couldn't stop talking about riding the hay ride. He was obsessed with "Old McDonald's tractor," making it hard for him to focus on finding a tree. So, when the driver offered him a chance to sit at the wheel, he was thrilled! He grabbed the wheel like he knew exactly what he was doing.

|^^^ August slept right through the pig races. ^^^|
Our house is all decked out for the season now, and it smells wonderful, thanks to our tree. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. I'm so excited to experience the holidays with our kids as they grow. I know how much I looked forward to our family's holiday traditions each year, and I can hardly wait to establish new traditions with them.
