Christmas Tree Hunting

Took Mona out of school Wednesday to go Christmas tree hunting in the forest near our house. We opted to go to a local shrine to avoid inadvertently cutting down a neighbor’s tre by accident. Mona picked out the two Charlie Brown style trees you see in the photo above.
I spent the afternoon with her making and painting decorations (the ornaments that Mom gave her last year are too heavy for the tiny little branches on the tree) and Tomoe will be baking some ginger bread cookie ornaments with her after school today. Then maybe we watch “The Baby Show” (Raising Hope) and make popcorn strings.
I never thought I would be doing this kind of Christmasy thing, but somehow mona saw it on TV and has been bugging us for a tree.
