Christmas Tree

Friday Declan felt a bit better so we went to get our Christmas tree. The Reade Ranch where we’ve gone the last several years has closed and so we went to Stocker farms instead. 
Declan was very excited that he was able to help cut down the tree this year and help carry it to the car! 

 After chopping it tree we explored around the farm and helped Mao and Pop with their tree. Stocker farm wasn’t our favorite place. I think we will choose a different one next year. 

We returned to Mao’s house for Thanksgiving leftovers. Brad helped Pop set up their tree. Then Pop delivered our tree to our house. We spent the evening decorating it and listening to Christmas music.

Declan started running a fever on Thanksgiving eve. He ended up sick Thanksgiving Day so we had a quiet day at home together. I drove to Mao and Pop’s to get us a turkey dinner. Then we got out Christmas decorations and started decorating our house!

The boys had a great time and and were worn out after a couple of hours!
