Christmas Tree Farm

Today we went down to Olympia to Hunter's Tree Farm, with my parents, to pick out our Christmas Tree. This was the place that my family went to every year, it was always so much fun.... they have a huge selection of trees, animals, hot chocolate, "sleigh rides," and even reindeer! So, it brought back lots of memories for me. Of course the first thing Blake sees (and just about the only thing he sees) is the TRACTOR! :o)
The only way we could get him off was to tell him we were going to go find another tractor. So we tricked him into going and looking at trees, thankfully we found one pretty quickly, so did my parents, and Blake had a great time helping both daddy & grandpa cart their trees to the truck!
What a good helper!

Then, he spotted another tractor.....

They had some goats and pigs that you could feed, Blake obviously thought it was pretty appalling that I was letting them eat out of my hand.

the reindeer

I think Blake had a great time!

I know I haven't posted for a LONG time... we're going on almost a month here! Most of my excuse is that we don't have the Internet at our house, and when I'm around a computer I seem to only have time to check email, etc. I know that's a totally LAME excuse, but it's the best I can do!

I can tell you that Blake's newest 'thing' is the Jungle Book.... oh my goodness, you wouldn't even believe how obsessed that child is with that movie. My mom bought it for him a while ago because he loved reading the book. Way to go grandma.... now he BEGS to watch it ALL the time, and cries when I say no (I do limit him to one viewing a day), but seriously what 18 month old kid wants to sit down and watch a movie!? I do have to say it is pretty cute to watch him watch it, he laughs and smiles and dances to all the songs, it makes him so happy! The elephants are his absolute favorite!
