We took these pictures of the kids at Thorton's Tree Farm. What a wonderful place! It kind of reminded me of the pumpkin patch, only with trees. We strolled through the petting zoo, took a hayride, drank hot chocolate by a warm fire, visited their nativity scene, wondered through the beautiful christmas trees, and Luke's favorite, watched cut trees being shaken within an inch of their life and bound in netting, an amazing processes. I was "sniffeling all the way!" Because I am allergic, but it was worth it, and it was all free! Not the trees of course, but all the holiday fun.
