Being Brickner : Christmas Jams & The Tree Farm

Christmas Jams & The Tree Farm

Happiest Friday!  This week has flown right by, which I'm sure will sadly be the theme this December.  We've been spending our time packing in holiday activities & getting as much gift shopping done as possible, I'm determined to get it all done before the last week so I won't be the crazy lady in a mad dash through the mall with two kids in tow!  Avalon seems to have finally kicked her cold, and Waverly has had a string of days with no time-outs and just some stellar three-year old behavior.  I'm not sure if it has to do with our new "Santa is watching" go-to statement, I guess only time will tell.  Yet for now, it's nothing short of amazing.

And jams.  Matching jams.  CHRISTMAS matching jams.  

Pajamas
Apparently by picture number three, Avalon wasn't quite as happy about the pajamas that I was.

Also, we made our first trip ever to an actual tree farm!  We've gone to the tree lot down the street from us with my parents for years, but have never been to one of the places where you actually cut down the tree yourself.  This time we decided to fully embrace it, and even get our first real tree (I'm completely OCD & never wanted to deal with the clean-up before).  It was so much fun, Waverly absolutely loved running free through the lot and making comments about every single tree.  My parents picked out one for their house that my brother cut down and my husband cut down ours.  And since bringing it home, I have to say that the smell of a real tree in the house is infinitely better than the candle I've used instead for way too many seasons now.  I'll (probably) never go back to fake again! :)

And yes, that is a giant stick Waverly is running rampant with, it was meant to measure the trees, which she loved.  Us, not quite as much.

  11. We got rid of our fake tree this hear becuase we are moving across the country and I'm using that as a reason to get a real one. My grandparents used to get one every year as well. Looks like Waverly had a blast at the tree farm!

  12. Those Gap jammies are so perfect! I want them in my size! I have a fake tree paired with a scented candle, and you're right -- it's not the same lol but I love saving money every year not buying a real one!

  16. You always capture the cutest shots of your gals. Their matching pajamas melt me. And going to the tree farm with my family is some of my greatest memories. There aren't too many cut-it-down-yourself farms around here anymore. :( I am totally craving one, though and making those memories with my sweet boys.
