Christmas tree cutting

This year we decided to go to Davis Ranch in Sloughhouse and cut down our own tree.  $35 for any tree we chose. Not too bad!! It was freezing and overcast today (around 40 degrees) so we were all bundled up. We were a bit disappointed in the tree selection, but managed to find one we liked. Overall, a fun experience!

Pony rides

We love going to the Civic Center farmer's market when we visit my parents. Chloe loves the bounce houses, and both kids enjoyed pony rides today. And, of course, we all ate lots of yummy samples!!
Micah wanted to ride the smallest pony, and wanted to make sure that it would not lick him!
Chloe chose the biggest pony, and wanted to ride by herself, without being led!

Thomas bed

We traded our crib for this Thomas bed, and despite Micah not smiling in these pictures, he was very excited about his new bed!!

Hedge trimming

For one of my Christmas presents, Andrew got permission from the neighbors to trim the huge hedge wall next to our driveway (it is not on our property). It was so ugly and made it challenging to see when coming out of our driveway. 
getting started!
good helpers!
hmmm...I need to take an after photo! It looks so great!

Gingerbread Houses

Kari invited us to come over after preschool today to make gingerbread houses. So fun!  I think this will have to be a new tradition!!

Micah tries out preschool

The preschool director, Ms. Nancy, let Micah and I try out a session of the parent participation preschool class this morning. Micah had fun playing, painting and doing the craft. He didn't love the singing and circle time. Maybe we will try again in the spring!
