This is a small portion of December....
This tree farm is about 5 miles from our house:-)
It was bitter cold and windy the day we went to the tree farm..
We have really enjoyed the tree farm experience.
We chose a "mini" tree this year..
Our littles were so excited about having a tree their size.
I thought this wasn't a great idea, I was proven wrong, it turned out so cute!
We took some of our Christmas card pictures while at the tree farm.
Bekah drove her car so she could bring the tree home for us :-)
Our "mini" tree, I absolutely enjoyed looking at the tree this year.
Christmas is "my" favorite holiday and time of the year, but with being so pregnant I didn't have it in me to decorate like I normally do....keeping things simple was my plan. Elizabeth picked up where I slacked. She decided to decorate the tree with homemade ornaments. She had craft days with the littles, and they made the ornaments that hung on the tree. The littles were so proud of their homemade ornaments....when I looked at the tree I saw creativity, love, simplicity, and beauty. I think it was the pretties tree ever.
Christmas Eve dinner....
It was a real treat to be able to leave the hospital and come home to have Christmas Eve
with my family, though it was 'hard' to leave my babies behind.

Our first Christmas gifts arrived....
Olivia Noel & Emma Joy
Our sweet girls may have had to celebrate their first Christmas in the hospital,
but everyone needs a tree.....
So, Elizabeth made them a little tree to have on their beds.
The nurses gave the girls Christmas booties to wear along with pink reindeer hats...
They looked very festive ;-)
