Tree Traditions

It was our 6th year cutting our tree from the local tree farm. I can’t believe we have such a solid tradition already in our young family!

Daddy was piggy-backing Claire so I got a turn dragging our tree, while holding Seth in the carrier in front!

    There's a farm that we always go to…we've been friends with the family since we had our store in Delhi.

    Claire looks adorable with the saw :-)
