Oh Christmas tree...

We made our 2nd "annual"(skipped last year, didn't even put up a tree at all...two newly walking toddlers...didn't have it in me) trip to a tree farm to cut down our Christmas tree. 
It was quite the experience this year. 
We drove close to an hour to this farm and as we were driving in the gates it started pouring down rain. 
We waited out the rain for a few minutes then headed out on the hayride to find the perfect tree.
Avery wanted this one

After about 5 min of tree shopping, the rain came back.
The kids didn't care at all and really enjoyed tromping around in the rain and mud.
We then very quickly chose a tree and hightailed it back to the hayride. 
A little wet, but still having fun!

And here is the final product!
It's a little bare at the bottom, but it's just as well cause the ornaments have been rearranged about a hundred time by two "helpful" toddlers. 
I will consider it a success if we make it through Christmas with the tree still standing!!
