O' Tannenbaum

Our Christmas tree is finally up and decorated! Our neighbor, Heinz, took us down to the Christmas tree market in town where we picked out our first "German" Christmas tree ... and it happened to be on the first snowfall of the year ... talk about perfect timing! The Christmas tree market wouldn't be complete without Gluhwein and bratwurst (though we didn't partake as it was only 9:30 in the morning .. but I have to admit ... I could have gone for some Gluhwein).

Kelty riding in his new Radio Flyer wagon down to pick out a Christmas tree.

Al, Sue and Mike carrying the tree back to the house.

Heinz pulled Kelty back to the house.

The first snowman of the year .... Mikey style

No one is exempt from shoveling snow!

Kelty hung all the non-breakable ornaments along the bottom of the tree ... he really had a lot of fun! I tried to capture a good profile pic of Kelty hanging and ornament ... just like my dad used to do with us. I should have changed the camera setting because they all came out blurry.

Kelty found a clever little spot for the Santa ornament ... we all got a good little laugh over this one.
