Christmas Tree

These post are way out of order, but I'm attempting to catch up :)

Josh and I get a fresh Christmas tree every year and we were so excited to take HG with us this year.  I've learned that with a little one, the early morning is the best time to get stuff done.  After she wakes up and eats we can do just about anything and she is game.  So, one morning we decided to go pick out our Christmas tree.  It was super cold outside and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to use Hadley's new snowsuit/fur-suit that Josh's mom bought her before she was even born.  The tag said 0-3 mo, as you can see the tag should have said 6-9 mo :)  After I got her all snuggly, we put her in the carseat and realized we couldn't buckle it. So, once we re-dressed her we were on our way.  We took our pickup truck (a.k.a Big Red) to bring the big tree home.  We drove to Lowe's and they only had about 20 trees to pick from.  Hello, it's Christmas time people, where are all of the trees?  A little bummed out, we almost left empty handed until we went out front of the store to dig as a last resort and there it was...the most perfect tree, pretty much the only one they had, but it was perfect!  We loaded up and headed home.  Hadley thought it was really fun to ride in the middle of the truck and be next to both of us.  She just looked and smiled the whole time.  By the time we got home she was all tuckered out and fell asleep, but all in all it was a very fun memory.  Here are some short clips from the day.

The final outcome

Hadley enjoying the tree and all the lights.  
She always looks at the very top!
