Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

I forgot to mention in my last post we put up our Christmas tree on Monday. Gabe was super excited, he kept saying "Bismas Tree in da House" and then he would laugh. We had him put the star on top. When he went to bed that night there were only lights on so when he woke up the next morning and came out to find a decorated tree, complete with pine cones, he was super excited(the kid loves pines cones for some reason.) He has already called Grandpa and Grandma to come over to see his Bismas Tree.

So why the switch?

So I decided to switch our website with a little prodding from my husband. He said this is a better layout so we are giving it a try. We have had a busy past couple of weeks. We traveled up to Algona for the Thanksgiving holiday to celebrate with the Mawdsley's and to help out at the tree farm. It was a busy weekend but it went well. Gabe enjoyed helping to run the tractor to shake tree's and Ty kept Grandma Nancy busy in the house. Ty got to meet Aunt Em for the first time this week as well(see picture). I think she kind of liked him as she joked she was going to take him back with her in her carry on! Gabe had a great time being on the farm. He was able to visit Uncle Bone one day and he got 2 tractor rides, as well as the tractor rides he received everyday on Grandpa Matt's blue tractor, he was in 7th heaven! Gabe also loved Purdy (Andrea and Alan's dog who Grandpa Matt adopted) she was a patient dog who endured many Gabe hugs during the week(the picture didn't capture the hugs but we did get a few good ones with the two of them). We were also able to get the boy's Christmas Card picture taken, it is extremely difficult to get a 2 year old and a 3 month old to look at the camera at the same time, let alone smile, but we did get a few good ones. We will head up to the farm again this weekend, as it will be a busy one. We hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving.
