It just doesn't feel like Christmas without the tree. I am painfully aware that curious (almost) one-year-olds and big glittering objects don't really mix, but I couldn't imagine Jude's First Christmas without a tree, where would Santa put the presents? So we went to our favorite cut-your-own-tree-farm Davis Christmas Tree Farm (3700 Vine Hill Rd Sebastopol) in search of the perfect evergreen.
Once he was snug in his bed, Jason and I trimmed that beautiful tree (nothing fragile on the bottom half). And with the finishing touch, a sparking star, our family's First Christmas officially began.
