Shortly after Thanksgiving, we make our annual little trek to the tree farm in Alvo to pick out our tree. The kids are pretty efficient in their selection process anymore...I'm not sure the last time they picked a bushy tree. I have them trained to go for the varieties that are the most sparse. The last several years it has been so cold that they all ran to a tree, made their vote known and then quickly went back inside to warm up!
Christmas Eve dinner compliments of my grandparents...chicken noodle soup and butterballs. I'm so glad my kids know and love this dish!
