Christmas Trees!

We went to go Christmas Tree hunting. There were just a few of us, but it was still lots of fun! Here is our traditional family photo, as long as we can find the tree!!
So I did decide to go out with Chris to see what we could find. We took the 4-wheeler up a bit, because I knew I wouldn't last very long walking up hill. We walked around for a bit and then Chris went to look over this hill and I didn't want to so I found a nice log and waited, and waited and waited. I don't know how long it was, maybe 10 minutes, but I decided to follow his footprints in the snow. So I did for probably 10 minutes and decided that I had the keys to the 4-wheeler and I was going back to where we came from. I didn't want to get lost in the woods being 7 months pregnant.. So on my way back I ran into Chris. He ended up down at the 4-wheeler and had to come back up to where he left me. He did decide that it wasn't the best idea to leave me in the woods and promises he won't do it again! LOL So we decided not to go back down the way we came up, which was a major mistake. It was like ice the whole way and I decided it would be better for me to sit down, but with my slick snowpants, I just took off. Luckily Chris caught me, but it was quite exciting. Good thing we didn't have Jayden with us! But we did find us a tree!! :) Camilla insisted on taking this photo! My snowpants obviously don't quite fit me the same when I'm 7 months pregnant!! Good thing my belly doesn't get too cold these days!
Jayden was so not a fan of his coat/boots/hat/mittens!! It took him a little while to warm up to the whole idea of keeping them all on.
He kept falling down! The ground was just so uneven that he couldn't get very far before he would crash again and again and again!!
Uncle Spencer was so nice to share his music. Jayden loves headphones and most of the time he gets it in the ear instead of the mouth!!
The kids all love the 4-wheelers. It's so cute!
Alesha even took Jason & Jayden for a ride on her sled. They had a blast. Thanks for entertaining them Alesha! They sure do love you!!
Mom took off to find her tree and ended up hurting her leg. Hope you feel better! And thanks for all the yummy food and taking care of all the kids while we went to hunt down our tree!
I was getting in the truck and Jayden apparently decided we were playing peek-a-boo. So he was hiding on the other side of the door waiting for me to come find him. Silly boy! But he does love that game. In fact, now he even keeps quiet and won't come out. It makes the game a little more difficult for me, but when I do find him he's just grinning from ear to ear!!
Katie Jo even came out to experience a little of her first Christmas tree hunt. She is just over a month old, and super cute with tons of dark hair!!
And here is the whole gang. Jennifer & Kire weren't able to make it down, Anne was home with sick little Ashton, and dad was at a funeral! We missed you all and hope to see you next time!!

Jayden with his wonderful photographer, Camilla! Thanks for all the pictures mel!

That story about sliding down on your snow pants made me laugh a long time. Oh and I love the snow pant look. Oh how I love all the lovely pregnant pictures people take.
