Getting the Tree, and Frosting on the Side

We went to my Grandparents farm in Stuben County last Sunday to get our Christmas tree. We are going for a full tree this year and I am just hoping it lasts through Christmas Eve with the little guy about the enter his "terrible 2's". (as I typed that first sentence, he managed to pull over the quilt rack, spill his milk, and scare the cat with a wind up chicken toy).

We all had a great time and little guy really enjoyed the wagon rides.




He picked out the tree, but he was in a hurry to get back to the wagon.

He had a great time destroying Grandma and Grandpa's house and rolling anything with wheels on it through the kitchen. Check out that fantastic wood box! Two wood stoves heat the house - a big one in the livingroom and a small one in the kitchen/dining area. It felt wonderful to sit on the hearth and soak up the heat. I love our pellet stove, but there is just no substitute for a wood burning one.



Afterwards we had some frosting. Grandma makes German chocolate cake with the thickest, heaviest, richest frosting I have ever had. She makes everything from scratch.
