This was our first year Christmas tree chopping with the babycakes, and we have been looking forward to it for a long, LOOOOOOOooonnnngggg time.  

Really, a long time.

We went out on a cold day and packed our little bean up nice and tight in the backpack for the hike out to the good trees.  We wanted a nice tall one that wasn’t too perfect.  I like a tree that looks like a tree — not one shaped and trimmed just right.  Do you guys cut your own tree?  There’s something so special about it.  We’ve done it since I was Annika’s size.  In fact, this is me, Christmas tree chopping back when I was a little scoot:

And a year or two later….

And here’s us this year, with my own little scoot. Judging by the photos of me when I was a kiddo, she should be old enough to hold the saw by….oh, next year. :)

And she’s pretty happy about it, too. :)

While I was out in New England this weekend shooting Sarah + Adam’s wedding in beautiful Windsor, Vermont, Annika and I also got to spend some time with my sister and her family. Stacey and I have gone apple picking every year since we were both just little kiddos, and Sunday was the perfect afternoon to continue with the tradition. Annika had her first hay ride (which she slept through) and chowed down on her first apple (who knew apples could be so STICKY??).

She was a little skeptical about hanging amid the enormous pumpkins, but mostly I think she was just happy to be chilling with her big cousins all weekend.

We’re on vacation right now.

It’s our first with the babe.

It’s heavenly.

Hopefully you’ll excuse me if it takes an extra day or two to get back to emails & calls.  
Here’s why:
