Year ten of blogging about the ninja and the gnome. We continue to laugh more than we cry.
Enjoy as the hilarity ensues.

Time for #2!!! We packed up the Tundra, and hit the sunny pavement for our favorite tree farm, B&J Evergreen. It is the best - with tons of beautiful greenery and activities for the entire family. With the weather topping out at 40+*, we made a day of it. First, to find the perfect tree with long needles. It was a split decision, so we opted to draw from a hat. Long wins!
After the ceremonial standing ovation, as Daddy chopped down the tree, the kids and I hopped on the tailgate and sang Christmas songs. (Seriously. It was quite Norman Rockwell.)
Then, a sleigh ride through the woods,
a petting zoo with goats and burros,
a horse ride
and a chat with the Big Guy!
(gasp!! This is as close as Harper has ever gotten to actually making eye contact with Santa. Making progress, making progress...) Bennett requested a fainting goat. Yes - he asked for a fainting goat. Santa smirked at me, and told the Boy that he wasn't sure he would be delivering live animals this year, he would have to check - and then asked for any other options. Nope. Just a goat, please.
Heading home, and letting the tree rest, it was time again to turn up the music,
