The Bates crew went to get their Christmas tree yesterday. They always go to one of the many tree farms here in Floyd and cut down a live tree. It is a BIG DAY for them and they all look forward to it every year.
This year Jessica decided to crochet everyone Christmas hats to wear. She did such a great job!
Grace and I didn’t stay for the tree cutting. But we showed up long enough to get this group picture. John Luke was asleep in the van and Donna was sitting with him. Seeing us all dressed in our Santa hats makes me think of my mom. She loved Santa hats and would start wearing hers the first of December. She loved Christmas.
I love the fact that we live close enough to be able to do things like this together
This is their tree decorated and ready to go. I love how they decorated the school chalkboard as well.
Making wonderful memories! God bless.
