The Sharpes and our family took Gary, Lilly and their kids to get their first Christmas tree. Hun Ting (sp?), their son, was so excited to get the tree and get it up. By the end of the day, his excitement about the tree spread to the whole family. We went to Mr. Snowman's in River Falls. The ride there was beautiful. (I absolutely love the river valley, especially River Falls.) We hadn't cut a tree for Christmas in many years and it was lots of fun. My son Henry Michael was a great help as you can see.
It was fun having our kids home for the weekend, but it's also good to send them back to their schools. It's just right. Feels right. It's also nice knowing that they'll be home soon for Christmas.
