Since Will and I have been married, it's been our tradition to go hunt the perfect Christmas tree and cut it down ourselves. The past three years we've driven to the Wintergreen Tree Farm in Van Alstyne and had great luck finding just the right tree! This year we went hunting in jeans and T-shirts as it was 72 degrees - a little odd for these northerners. We made up for the lack of Christmas-like weather by listening to tons and tons of Christmas tunes - from White Christmas to Away in a Manger.

This weekend, while Will's parents were in town, we went to the Gaylord Texan to see their Ice exhibit. This year's theme happened to be The Grinch Who Stole Christmas - and it happened to be AMAZING! We were a little unsure how Breckin would do in the nine degrees inside this exhibit, since he is a native Texan. Apparently his parents' northern blood courses through his veins too, because he was too busy being awed by the colors and lights to care about the temperatures. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Lasher for starting this Christmas season off with such a fun treat!
