winter fun

We've been lucky so far that the weather this past month has been great.  It hasn't been too cold, but we've had just enough snow to keep the boys happy!  The first time it snowed, I took Krew outside to see the snowflakes.  They were huge and coming down softly (as opposed to the way it usually snows here--vertically!).  Krew thought it was awesome!  
If you look at the house in the background, you can see some of the snowflakes.  He liked to catch them on his mitten and watch them melt, but he was a little frustrated about trying to walk on the grass in shoes.
The day after Thanksgiving, we went to get our Christmas tree.  We found this really cute tree farm that you get to cut down your own tree.  Krew wasn't sure what to think about Rudolph!

We got to ride on a "train" to get out to the trees to select the perfect one.

Our family is getting kinda big to take pictures using the "reach your arm out and take a picture of yourself" method!

We found the perfect tree!  It's shorter than the ones we've had the past several years, but I was a little worried about the little guy pulling it over, so this one is just right!
After we got our tree, we came inside for hot chocolate and to warm up.  It was cold and windy that day!
