Cutting the Christmas tree is just an excuse– really, it’s all about the snowball fight.

    Love.

    The Christmas tree is always awesome, but this quote takes the cake on this post, I think:

    “Our lives would be so boring if our parents weren’t so immature.”

    I think that is what I love most about you guys. You know how to have fun. You also know what matters and care deeply about that, but your family knows how to have fun and I love it.

    Love you!

    My girls have already been asking when they get to see Miss Michelle’s tree. We’re due for a visit. And maybe this post will convince Doug it’s worth getting a permit and doing it ourself! 😉 That last photo is magazine worthy – okay all your photos are – but especially that last one. xoxo

    As always, your photos are fabulous…but it’s the joy that oozes from each and every photograph that makes them completely priceless. What a wonderful tradition.
