Oh Christmas Tree....Oh Christmas Tree

We went to the Sinnissippi Forest Tree Farm out in Oregon (town, not state!) today to cut down our Christmas tree - it is a Johnson Family tradition and they have been going there for the past 18 years! Sadly, this is the last year the Tree Farm will be open - they have decided to close down. We all tried to convince Grandma and Grampsy to buy the farm and we could all live there and run it! Couldn't you just see Kraig working on a farm?? Anyways, back to our day - we couldn't have picked a better day -sunny and around 45 (the 45 was not nice for me but the sunshine was definitely wonderful!)
We all met out front and then headed out from there in search of the 'perfect' tree for everyone! Somehow Aunt Danelle and Cousin Hunter convinced Uncle Matt to give them a ride on the tree cart (I'm pretty sure those carts said "no riding" on them......)
Kayden got a birds-eye view of the trees thanks to Grampsy! He was in search of the perfect tree for us... ....and he found it! Here he is with Mommy next to our tree. And Uncle Logan was even nice enough to cut it down for us (since Daddy had to work today and couldn't join us. And let's be honest...does anyone really see Mommy cutting it down??)
Kayden decided to get on the cart and take a ride with the tree (again, that "no riding" sign is coming to mind) And Cousins Landry and Kyra were even playing around with Kayden - showing him the twigs they had collected!
Cousin Connor and Cousin Hunter also had a great time today! I can't wait til these 3 boys get a little older and are all running around and playing with each other - it will be so cute!! Maybe next Christmas.....watch out!
They had horse-drawn rides at the tree farm today -Mommy and Kayden took a ride around the farm and had fun!!
And last, but certainly not least, SANTA was at the farm!! I think it's safe to say that Santa and Kayden will NOT be a good match this year!! Kayden wanted NOTHING to do with him....Bah Humbug! We had such a great time today - can't forget about the yummy donuts we had at the tree farm too~ Kayden enjoyed those! We're looking forward to a happy and healthy holiday season!!
