Rappelling Adventure

The two oldest kids went adventuring with their dad and some friends!

Oh, What Fun!

A week ago, over the Thanksgiving holiday, we were able to do something we've never done before! We went with Gene's sister's family to Ashley National Forest and cut down our first REAL Christmas tree!
What an experience! I didn't know picking out a tree could be so difficult. Gene's sister and her husband had their tree picked out within the first twenty minutes. But not Gene and I.

I just assumed that there would be a light shining down with angelic voices singing pointing out OUR TREE. Not so. It never happened.

We did find our tree, however. It took us until the very end of the outing, of course. And we did get to strap it to the top of van and drive all the way home! AHHH... the memories.
