HAS NOTHING ON THE BEALS!
We did venture deep into the wilderness to chop down this 'little beauty'. We walked and walked until finally we saw it -growing all alone with its tiny naked branches. Ironically from the road where we spotted it, it looked quite fluffy and christmas-appropriate. However, as we got closer and closer to it we could see it was a little bit 'charlie'. Too bad though, because Brigitte had done 4 major blowouts and ruined all her spare clothes and I was getting starving...so Gabe took the old ax and cut 'er down.
My brother Curtis (isnt he so adorable- even with his serial killer ax ?) came along bearing all the wood-chopping tools. He, along with his cute Kallie, was kind enough to get our tree permit and feed us breakfast before we left. *Thanks again John and Pam for the delish waffles bacon and fuits!*

Apparently Brigitte enjoys the outdoors. Once again I am forced to ask the question "Whos child IS this?"
After some surgical garland implantation, our tree was finally ready to hold some ornaments. Here is our kinda sad final result: Note my Eiffel tower still holding its own as our traditional tree topper!
Here is Gabe helping Brigitte hang her very first tree ornament. Its a pink jingle baby that is the cutest thing ever.

We hope you all had a luvly Thanksgiving! Christmas here we come!
