With a poorly Finn snuggly in the warm,
Jacob became a lumberjack for the day
and we brought home our Christmas tree.
I thought the best way was to let the photos tell the story...
The Christmas Tree Farm.
How about this one Mummy?
So many to choose from!
I think Jacob really did think it was Narnia.
Running and running and running!
So much running around to be done by boy and by dog.
Is this an ordinary sized dog amongst baby Christmas trees,
or are we being invaded by the giant dogs of another planet?
Still running, maybe just as well, to keep warm there Jacob.
Basil can't decide which tree tastes the best.
They all look so scrummy with their good dollop of 'frosting' on.
Glistening and twinkling,
looking like this, it's a shame to bring them indoors
and hang decorations on them at all!
Mother Nature knows best of course.
Right then Mum...
so you've definitely decided on this one?
Phew...it's hard work this lumberjacking lark!
What a tight squeeze...
But we managed it,
There he is,
in all his splender!
Meet 'BRUCE, the SPRUCE!'
Albeit missing a few decorated gingerbread hearts,
but they're in the oven as I type,
making my house smell delish.
Hope you all enjoyed
Christmas Tree shopping
with us, we reckon we came home with a beauty!
Hope to post before the big day
but if I don't manage it I'd like to wish everyone
A Huge BIG MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
(although I may just have to post a piccie of 'The Cake' etc
before I scoff it all...nom nom nom!!!)
Love Claire. xxx
