Anyway, enough about that. On to the point, Colleen!
In my opinion, there are two types of Black Friday crazy people; those who shop and those who chop. We're definitely the later. Don't get me wrong, I did plenty of online shopping, but we're not into getting up early to brave the crowds. We're not in dire need of any big ticket items at the moment either, so there's that. We are, though, Day After Thanksgiving tree choppers.
It has become a bit of a tradition in Keith's family for everyone to gather bright and early and caravan out to Half Moon Bay to Santa's Tree Farm to chose Christmas tress. We missed last year, but a bunch of us made it this year, so this was O's 2nd trip to the tree farm (here is O's first trip to Santa's Tree Farm) and he had a BALL!
Can you spot the banana slug?
When we got home from the tree lot we had a quick lunch of Thanksgiving leftovers (always better the next day!) and got right into decorating the house for Christmas. Owen loved seeing all the boxes of decorations being brought in and climbed on top of them and declared the pile his "ship"! We unpacked about 60% of what was in the boxes and put the rest back. Call me Scrooge, but I don't like a lot of clutter.
Merry Christmas Season, my friends!
