Christmas Tree & Seeing Santa

This year we went to a small privately own Christmas tree farm about 20 minutes from home. The field use to be used to grow alfalfa then the kids moved away, with no help to harvest the hay, the farmer planted Christmas trees. He had many nice tree's priced very reasonably. It was nice to have our tree cut that day and support the community I work in.  LeAnne wasn't all together thrilled with the search for the tree. In fact I ended up carrying her up and down the hill while daddy and I picked out a tree.  I tried to get her to play hide and seek like I use to with my little brother but she was just too cold. 

Decorating the tree on the other hand, she had a blast!!  We cranked up the Christmas tunes, she danced and impatiently waited while daddy strung the lights and garland.  Our tree is decorated with beautiful ornaments and memories. 

On Sunday night we went to the Walla Walla Law enforcement Christmas party.  It was nice to meet John's partner and his family.  We enjoyed a yummy dinner and LeAnne loved seeing Santa.  She was not afraid at all, in fact she was very excited to see him.  We were surprised when each family got a gift.  LeAnne thinks Santa is pretty amazing!!

She loved that her baby had a matching dress!
On the way home from the party LeAnne was a bit worn out, we turned on one of her Jesus CD's, silly thing kept skipping so we had trouble finding a song that would work for her and then we said "How is this one"? She said "okay, I shake my booty" and begun to bust a move in her car seat. I was so precious!! :-)

This is the best Christmas yet with her.  She went from not understanding Christmas at all last year to be so full of excitement this year.  She loves the decorations, the lights, the music, Santa of course, and wrapping presents.  She tells us Merry Christmas at least a few times a day.  It's precious!
