FC: Christmas Tree Day 2004-201 1
1: On the day after Thanksgiving, When most people go shopping, My family does something, That's almost show-stopping. | And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” | Luke 2:10-12
2: Along with our cousins, We hop in the van, And drive somewhere far, Just 'cause we can.
3: And also because it's Christmas tree day! Hold on just a minute, there's more to say; | Singing loud and laughing long, We ask dad to turn up the song,
4: He says yes, | The moms say no, | But that's just how | It always goes.
5: Before ya know it, | We're at the farm! | Ty-Lyn Tree Farm
6: The pig "Sweet Pea" Causes some alarm, | But we don't care because we know, That she can't snap out at our toes.
7: We grab a ride down to the lot, After some apple cider from a pot.
8: We look at all the many trees, Just waiting 'til Somebody sees, The tree that is the very best, And it will be our new house guest.
9: Once we've found a lovely tree, One on which we all agree, We hop back in the big blue van, And go to eat some pizza, man :)
10: Sometimes we stop to shop a while, (There's stores around for about a mile,) And then we go back home to stay, Oh how we love our Christmas Tree day.

34: Memories | I remember that year we went in shorts and a t-shirt and it snowed and we were frozen!! Then the next year we all bundled up and it was 85 degrees haha there are so many though... -Justin | I remember that when we get to the Christmas tree place we get apple cider then we run up the big hill! :D and then after we go to the shops and then eat dinner! -Madi | I remember one time we got lost and Mom and Dad and Aunt Peggy and Uncle Joel were looking for the Christmas Tree. -Davey | One time before we left I lost my glove and had to run all the way up the Big Hill to find it with Dad. -Kristen | Last year my camera fell and the back and batteries fell. The camera won't work without the back but we found it. :) -Sally | Well... I remember we always would go right up to the place to get family pictures! And head to get our Christmas Tree! And we would always go to a pizza place. It was good!:) -Emily
35: First, going to get our Christmas tree starts the wonderful Christmas holiday for the Taylor's!! Love listening to Christmas music and singing! We remember the one time we went to a Christmas Tree Farm that had reindeer and a sleigh, all the kids piled in and we took pics:) Always excited to pose for another yearly photo to add to our collection after we finally find the perfect tree and cut it down. Variety of temperatures over the years from warm, hot, cold, freezing and snow!!!! Great fellowship and bonding between the families for the glory of God! -Peggy | I remember we wore shorts one time because it was so hot. I liked to bring the ham/turkey rolls from Thanksgiving. A couple times it has snowed and that's fun. Somebody's batteries always end up not working. We always bring snacks :). I really like the pizza place we go to because it's in our budget, it's pizza, and it's on the way! -Barbi
36: Our waitress at the pizza place was the same twice. Her name was Jenna! -Sally | I like the Christmas tree place because they have apple cider and the big hill. -John Mark | Apple cider! We always have to try to keep it from spilling! -Kristen | I like it when Dad finally cuts down the tree and we can go home. :) -Barbi | Barbi: I remember when you look in the mirror everyone has their headphones on. Kristen: That's because you don't turn the music up loud enough! Barbi: Oh please. | One of the reasons I love Christmas Tree Day is because it's when we get to start listening to Christmas music! -Jenna
