Getting in the Christmas spirit!

It's been a while since I've posted, unfortunately my mom is in the hospital and it has been quite the ordeal, but I'll save that for another time.

But we were able to make our annual trip to Linville falls to get our Christmas tree.

Once again we stayed at Linville Falls Lodge, we've stayed here for  about 5 years now and we absolutely love it.

And no trip is complete without eating at Famous Louise's Rockhouse.
Mmmmmm, Mmmmm, Good!!!!

The best jelly EVER!!!!

Then we made our way to Sugar Plum Tree Farms. 

How about this view?  And we aren't even close to the top yet.  This was about 1/4 of the way up and I said just pick one in this area, the hike was worse than you may think.

The tree's look a lot smaller on the side of a mountain than they do at home in your living room so we had to carefully select the perfect tree.

After much consideration, Mr. Wonderful is pretty picky about his tree, we made a choice!

Now we get to start cutting!!!

Baby boy did the cutting then we got to carry her down the hill.

Remember how steep that hill was, just take a look at that first picture.

Steep isn't it?

So we waited on the side of the hill for a tractor, so my boys wouldn't work themselves too hard.

Handsome, isn't he? 

After getting it home and getting it put up, here's how she looks now!

Now all we need are presents!
