Decorating our Christmas Tree (2017)

This is the 2nd installment of the Christmas Tree Video. It’s my turn to do the hard work this time. Good thing it is one of the things I love to do…. decorating. It brings out the creative side of me. And research shows doing the artsy activity of Christmas decorating is therapeutic. Just like doing painting and playing musical instruments, it’s relaxing at the same time good for the brain.

I’ll let you watch the video below and I hope you enjoy!


Happy Holidays!

Happiest Christmas Tree

The Sunday after thanksgiving Dave fulfilled his promise that he will get us a fresh Christmas tree. I was so looking forward to shopping for real Christmas Tree, it was going to be my first. However, the day was not very cooperative as it was pouring that day. But rain or shine he said we will go and if he must he will chopped it down himself. I was expecting to go at Christmas Tree farm in Half Moon Bay because we always passed by it when we go to the beach. But he made a sudden turn towards the Skyline Blvd and drove through the Redwoods towards La Honda. He said he will take me to a much bigger farm. fullsizeoutput_1a1fThe place was called Skyline Ranch Christmas Tree Farm, and the drive on the way was scenic and just amazing even with the rain. If I may say it made it more exciting and fun. Below is the video of our fun adventure to get a blue spruce Christmas Tree. The most essential part of our activity is the bonding as family in working together amidst the pouring rain and having fun at the same time.

 

Him being a very handyman did most of  the hard work and I was like the happy kid playing in the rain.  Lol!  These are one of the times when we women are so thankful for the men in our lives. You can also say he is Santa and I’m his happy elf! I did help! 🤪

I will now look forward to this annual tradition as it is a great joyous family experience. May this inspire you and your family to do wonderful things together. Enjoy the video!

Happy Holidays!
