Oh Christmas Tree

To do something different, we went to Tanaka Farms in Irvine in search of our Christmas tree this year.

 Noah did NOT like the mud

Breathing in the fresh, earthy pine

We ended up with the very best tree we have ever had. It was the perfect shape, the most beautiful dark green, and smelt AMAZING! We found out it was shipped from Oragon only hours before it was in our truck, it even had fresh snow still on its branches. 

I'm not sure we will go back next year though. The trees were three times the price we usually pay. Yikes! But it sure was beautiful to look at!

And our family photos have changed...

But I am sure you can see the difference from 2008 to 2010

You may have seen some of the more obvious differences between Noah and Dean, but if you didn't (mostly because of the poor quality photos) here are some we have noticed:
  1. Dean has lighter eyes than Noah had
  2. Dean has a little bit more fat on his chest
  3. Dean likes to open his eyes very wide
  4. Noah was a tad bit smaller than Dean
  5. Noah's face was perfectly symmetrical, Dean's is still shaping
Similarities, both:

  1. Are good eaters! They both could eat awake or a sleep
  2. Slept 10-12hrs at 8 weeks old
  3. Smile more for Dad than for Mom
  4. Have the sweetest lower lip mad face
  5. Have big cheeks (both on their face and bottom!)
  6. Are happy to eat by bottle or breast
  7. Spit-up mostly on other people (ha ha!)
  8. Have large heads that they could barely hold up (at three months)
  9. Have similar nose, lips, hair color, and chin...and so much more
