O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

We decided today was the annual family bonding & going out to the woods to cut down a christmas tree.    We ended up at the Elms which is right around the corner from Scott's house & where Jessie now works on weekends.

 That's why she is wearing the red apron...she make the apple cider donuts in the little cafe they have.  It's so funny because her other part time job she has is at Focastle ( apple orchard/gift shop/ cafe) & her job there is making donuts!
 Meghan & Jessie
 LiLi & I wandered over to see Santa' reindeer & all we found were these guys.....can't imagine how he's going to pull that big sleigh with these little goats!

 When we found everyone again they were looking at the pre-cut trees!
 Within five minutes each of them had the perfect tree!
 It's never been that quick before!  As you can tell it was a beautiful day, reasonably warm & they picked out trees that quickly.....normally we trudge through the woods for hours freezing our tushies!

 "Hurry's getting heavy"
 We had to go for a trolley ride out to the fields
 We were just going to ride out & back but LiLi spotted this fun slide that was from their "fall fun stuff" & had to go down it.
 As you can see it is pretty long but she wasn't the least bit scared!

 She went down the first time with Scott but came out alone as he got stuck!

That's our trolley ride back in the distance.

It was a really nice day & no one missed trudging forever through the fields looking for the "perfect" tree!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
