Finally – Christmas Tree time!

As promised, the Grinch and I went to get our Christmas Tree this weekend!

For the past few years Jon and I started a sort of tradition at the Winterberry Farm.  We put the dogs in their sweatshirts (we only do this for super cold days or special occasions), load everyone in the car, and head over to the Christmas Tree farm as a family.

Of course, there’s really only one way to make sure that the Grinch gets his butt out into the cold day.

Dunkin Donuts

It’s his little thing.  Mine is a Starbucks.  What different lives we lead.

A few minutes later, we arrived at our favorite Christmas Tree Farm.

Then we spend an hour walking around, looking for that perfect Tree.

Settling on the perfect tree, the Grinch starts cutting it down while I walk around and take pictures.  Hey – we each have our jobs.

The pups have their jobs too.

And the Tree is down.

    Bungee got to ride shotgun when she couldn't fit in the back with the tree. That is 45lbs of annoying for a 20 minute drive!

    Those dogs are just so gorgeous in their vests. And what a pair of posers too. Hope you get 'The Grinch' to decorate the tree too…do you give him the fairy to put on the top?

  3. Ha! Just was thinking Harper would never fit. (And, yes, this is a new comp. ARGH)
