Getting the Tree

On Sunday afternoon, after church, we bundled up and headed over to Turks Trees to cut down our Christmas tree. This year a miracle happened! The first tree we examined was the one we cut down! :) Usually we search and search...and search for the perfect tree, which for our house means tall and thin!

Decorating the tree


One of our traditions is to make Eggnog and sip it while we decorate the tree.  Here is our recipe...Enjoy! :)

To our blender we add:
1 cup yogurt
1/4 cup maple syrup (We use boxelder syrup! :))
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. nutmeg
4 egg yolks
dollop of cream
and then fill the rest of the blender with milk! Yum! :)
