a very charlie brown christmas tree

Last night we piled the entire family into the car.
It was Christmas Tree time.

We took a drive over to a family members land that has a bunch of cedars and pine trees growing in hopes that we might find the perfect tree.
(we're on a little bit of a budget.....we'll see you next year Possom Hollow!)

Despite their gloomy faces, car rides are the pups favorite thing to do. Maybe they didn't like Olivia tagging along.

"Please don't leave me in here with these smelly dogs"

No, Andrew isn't taking a leak in the picture. He's revvin' up the chain saw for our monster of a tree! (and then my camera it goes...)


And there she is!!! The most beautiful Christmas tree i've ever laid eyes on!

We sat beside our wood stove sippin' on some *tasty hot coco and delighted in our first christmas tree decorating day together in our new home!

We just need a few more ornaments....

We're gettin' in the spirit around here folks. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

*Pretty Darn Tasty Hot Coco*

Fill one coffee mug up with milk (leave room on the top for marshmellows)

Heat milk up for about 2 min. or so..Add 1 & 3/4 packet of coco mix (mmmmmmm)

Stir together until well blended.

Reheat if needed. Add a splash of Vanilla Coconut Milk (sold in your healthy section of the grocery store---i'm trying it out. Milk has become my enemy)

add a dash of cinnamon (the secret kicker)

Reheat if needed...just make sure it is at a good sippin' temperature.

Add TONS of mini marshmellows.

Give another sprinkle of cinnamon on top--just for looks sake.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Now find a woodstove, 2 farm dogs, 1 black and white cat, a trailer, & your lover and I promise you--all will feel right in the world. :)
