Time to Make Holiday Memories!

Ok, so it's time to deck and halls and be jolly! So while the fam was in town for Thanksgiving, we went and got our Christmas Tree! Now, it was much more fun than it sounds... First, we took a horse-drawn hayride to the backlot for all of the fun. We were all given our own baggie with s'more ingredients to roast over a campfire. Also Santa was there with Comet, Cupid, and Donner. So we got to tell him what we wanted and got a picture, we even got to feed the reindeer! We seen geese, pigs, miniature horse, donkey, and a beautiful rooster. They also had a playground. The weather was perfect. We chose our tree and headed back. What great holiday memories! Isn't that what it's all about?
