Whole Foods Christmas Trees!

by Holly on December 17, 2014

Last week as we were heading out the door to the tree farm to chop down our Christmas tree, we noticed it was going to rain on and off all day.

“How does everyone feel about walking to Whole Foods and picking out a tree there?” I asked.
Everyone preferred that option. We’d done it before, and it was a huge success. So, we loaded up the boys in the wagon, and set off for our home away from home.

We chose a gorgeous 7 foot tree, and decided our tree chopping tradition would be an every-other-year event.

Christmas Eve is one week from today! If you find yourself still in need of a tree, Whole Foods is the place to get it.

Here are the instructions. Have fun!

Donate Leftover Halloween Candy

November 13, 2014

Did you come home on Halloween night with an insane amount of candy and then hide it, only to find it two weeks later? No? Only Me? Aside from the artificial colors and flavors, trans fat and high fructose corn syrup this stuff contains, I have a hard time eating any of the chocolate after […]
