It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

And not only because it is a mere 30 degrees outside.

For Zayd's first Christmas we started what I hope will be a Mammen family Christmas tradition: we drove out to Devine and chopped down our own Christmas tree! There was so much to do at Devine Acres Farm and I would highly recommend it to other elves looking for the perfect tree.

Our first stop was to snap some photos of the little guy enjoying the farmin' lifestyle.
Drivin a tractor:

Hanging out on some hay bales:

Eventually, we made our way to the actual trees and it was mighty overwhelming!
The texture of some of the trees made the lentil crinkle his nose.

We toyed with the idea of a tree that was just Zayd's size:

But ended up settling on the fattest, bluest tree on the lot:

And Daddy set to work choppin it down with an old fashioned saw.

Daddy hauled the tree to get back on the hayride and we headed to the tree processing center where they shook that poor tree to within an inch of its life.
We spent some time with the chickens and goats and Zayd loved it. Loved!
