deck the halls

We're getting into the Christmas spirit at our house... maybe a little late this year, but with no less enthusiasm. We were without a tree when I landed, so one of the first things we did when I arrived was set off on a hunt for the all-important Tannenbaum.

The lots were a little picked over, but I think we managed to find quite a good one - perhaps this particular fir was meant just for us!

Thar she lies, waiting for her coach home...

Part of Kasey's marvelous holiday table centerpiece.

Glittering foil-wrapped candy all they way from Slovakia!

The nostalgic silos of the still-functioning Lehi Roller Mills - a *must* stop for unique Utah-made gifts.

Not only do they grind their "Turkey" flour right on the premises, our Grandma has come to expect their exceptional blueberry pancake mix in her Christmas package.

At historic Wheeler Farm - telling Santa that "yes, I have been a *very* good girl."

And what's Christmas without a sleigh/hay/tractor ride through a forest of fairy lights?

Here's my fam waiting (freezing) patiently as we await our turn - hot cocoa in hand.

Yay! After an hour... at last we board!

Giddy-up let's go!

Singing carols with brisk air against your face and a backdrop of laughing little lights in the trees...
