Last night we went out for our yearly Night Tree adventure with friends.
Our evening is patterned after the book "Night Tree" by Eve Bunting.

We start by making treats for the wildlife.Then we all gather together near Lake Arcadia and make a fire to keep warm. We roast hot dogs and drink hot chocolate.

And S'mores, of course! Authentically heated on a branch found in the woods!


Then we all take a little hike in the woods to find our tree - the same one each year. We sing Christmas carols while we hang our treats on the tree (and put some on the ground for the bunnies). This is a Wonder Bread star Spencer made.

Star of Wonder!

I crack myself up.
When the tree is done, we gather around the fire and tell about our Christmas memories. Last night one of the young boys brought his guitar and led us in Christmas carols around the fire.
