Since we live in Colorado now I had visions of my family going deep into a mountain forest and cutting down a huge tree and dragging it home but since my kids are only 3 and 17 mos. and it's been crazy cold we opted for a tree lot. It was a very charming tree lot I must say and we drove up a winding mountain road to get there so I think it still counted. Counted as what? I'm not really sure. Where's the handmadeness in all this you ask? Well two minutes before we were out the door I cut the feet and the crotch part (I just said crotch) off a pair of stockings that were too small for Violet and put them on her legs. She rocked them.
