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!
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!
