For the past ~5 years we've made it a tradition to go cut down our own Christmas tree the weekend of Thanksgiving. We headed out Friday to Carl & Dorothy Young's Christmas Tree Farm for the second year in a row. Working around Maple's nap and when we thought they opened, we made the dreadful mistake of not going at the crack of dawn (next year -- get there by 8 am!) Regardless, we had fun searching for the perfect trees (4 this year) and cutting them down with the kids. A favorite tradition, I must admit!
Thanksgiving came and went in the blink of an eye. This year we spent the afternoon in Sidney, OH with Eric's family, then ventured back to Columbus for my family dinner. Lucky us, the Schaumburg's stayed in town this year and Will & Les came in from JH and the cousins from Denver. The holidays just don't get much better than this.
