The search for the perfect tree!

After a failed trip to San Francisco over Thanksgiving Day weekend, I was pretty sad.  So, my wonderful husband knew the best way to cheer me up was to get in the Christmas Spirit!  We packed up a picnic lunch and headed off to Ramona (about 45 minutes away) to look for a Christmas tree.  We wanted to have the experience of chopping down our tree.  When we got there I realized that the only way I was going to get the tree I wanted was to buy it already cut.  I love the noble fir trees and those don't grow in CA so I had to buy one that was imported from Oregon.  The trip was still a ton of fun though.  The kids got to see Santa, decorate cookies, make an ornament and bounce in the bounce house they had.  Then we ended the trip with a long picnic at a wonderful park.  The tree is now up and the house decorated (more on that to come!)

 He LOVED hanging and sliding across.  Over and over and over.
 He can never get enough sliding in!
