The Core does Christmas

When the Barnes drive out to get a tree, it isn't going to be some little 'Charlie Brown' sort. This year's is even more gargantuan than normal! Dan drug this monster through the woods by himself! (let's hear those manly grunts, men!)
After having to put the lights on (while it is laying down) and getting it in a stand (that will hold the beast upright), they were ready for some help!

We made it an event! 

The kids all helped keep us laughing. Jess made her famous ginger cookies, little smokies, carrot sticks, spinach dip

And fabulous hot cocoa (Naomi eventually got through her mountain of whipped cream to find out just how fab it was!)

Sweet beginning to the season!
