Christmas in the Air

It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.  ~W.T. Ellis

We took Chris and Steph out to visit longtime friends, the Smith Family, and spend a little time at
The Holiday Acres Christmas Tree Farm in Manvel.  As with all of the trips we've made out to the farm, we had a blast!  The weather was simply gorgeous for spending a Saturday outside and a wonderful spot to put ourselves in the Christmas spirit.

When we pulled up, the place was hoppin'.  I have never in my life seen such a busy Christmas Tree farm!  But there were plenty of willing hands to help and tons of things to do there. 

We took a hayride out into the fields.  The trees looked great!

The kiddos took part in some Texas-style sledding on the sand pile.

Justus had to show off some of his daredevil moves!

Brother and sister playing together.

After that, they spent some adventurous time climbing around on the tops of the large round hay bales. We chatted with our friends and sipped some hot cocoa and apple cider.

We came home with a proper fresh wreath for the front door!  Love it!
