Weekend Adventures: O Christmas Tree!

As is our tradition, we went up to the hills to cut down our Christmas tree this weekend!  Unlike the foothills in Washington, there is no snow in the Santa Cruz "Mountains" - but we still had a great time.  The tree farm that we go to lets you drive all over the property, so Zac was super excited to put the work truck in 4 wheel drive and do a little crawling.  We took some pictures and found the perfect tree!
After getting it all set up we enjoyed our first hot chocolate of the season - a wonderful day!

Backing up a bit, our weekend actual started on Thursday night with Zac's work party.  It was a formal event complete with a live band playing all the 80's hits!  They were AMAZING!  I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers and You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC were our favorites!!  The later being a staple of all Saint Martin's dances ;)   We danced the night away and enjoyed playing all the 80's arcade games they brought in.  Turns out I have mad skee ball skills!

On Friday the kids and I went to the Nutcracker Ballet.  It was a beautiful show put on by Los Gatos Ballet, with guest dancers from San Francisco Ballet Company.  Also, our neighborhood had a Christmas parade on Saturday morning complete with the high school marching band and Santa on a fire truck!  Great way to kick off the season!

Next weekend: Angels Aware!
