It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow and normally we wait till after to get our tree but December is super busy this year. I have to travel to CA for work and Kitty and I are taking a trip to Vegas to see some shows for my birthday, so we packed up everyone today and headed out to the Christmas tree farm.

Tonight was the annual Reindeer Roundup at Luca’s preschool Funny Farm. This school is so awesome and so great for Luca. In tonights performance Luca was a candy cane dancing his way away from some hungry reindeer.
With the help of two great engineers we got the holiday train up and running. One engineer takes the responsibility of being a conductor a little more seriously than the other. I’ll let you guess which one that is.
After the lights were up we headed to our favorite tree farm and in between the hot coco and hay rides the kids found the perfect tree! Luca was in charge of the saw Autumn was in charge of being perpetually cute.
With the lights up and the tree decorated next on the list was talking to Santa. Luca and Autumn have been calling the North Pole via their North Pole Communicator nightly so they were very excited to see Santa in person. We headed to the Alpenrose Christmas In Dairyville.
The dairy is home to several baseball fields, cycling track, go-kart race track, and western town replica with lots of fun shops.
We walked through story brook lane. It was a tree lined street with little buildings. Each building was based on a childrens story and came complete with petable animals. Here are the sheep from Little Bo Peep.
Autumn checks out the Three Little Pigs in their brick house with the Big Bad Wolf trying to blow it down.
Easily Luca’s favorite place was the two buildings of replica train cities. The cities were huge with diesel and steam engines, tunnels, and even a train roundhouse. He could have stayed here all night and have been plenty happy…
…but it was time for Santa’s house!!
This was supposed to be a Luca and Autumn pic 🙂 but not this year. Autumn decided she’d rather be with Dad than tell Santa what she wants for Christmas this time.
We had such a great time and will have to come back again next year
Grammie and Pop Pop got us a membership to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) for Christmas! We decided to go check it out today.
This Christmas we had a little family photo shoot for our Christmas card. Here is a little collection of the fun.
