Bringing Home the Tree on a Huskies Sleigh on a FiveSibes Christmas Flashback Friday!

 The Hills Bringing Home the Christmas Tree, 2018!

In our FiveSibes Family Christmas tradition, the holiday season lasts until what we refer to as "Little Christmas," or January 6th (which also happens to be my furangel Gibson's birth date, how special is that?)! So, for today's last 2018 seasonal Flashback Friday post, I'm sharing a lovely "Bringing Home the Tree" photo above from fellow Husky momma, Karen Hill from Minnesota. To me, the is the absolute perfect way to bring home the tree...on a Huskies-drawn sleigh! Woo!

Now with five Siberian Huskies, you'd think we'd have hooked them up once or twice to a sled, but no, my Huskies are citified! Two of them would prefer to ride on the sled, rather than pull one! The closest I've come to a "sled dog" is when we staged a photo that appeared like we hooked-up our furangel Chelsey up to a sled with my elementary aged daughter and her younger cousins for a family holiday calendar!

(Note, the "grumpy" reindog! The kids had a blast, but as you can see, Chelsey was not impressed with the antlers)!

Both of these photos bring such joy and smiles! Many thanks to the Hill Family for sharing their special holiday moment with us. 

Here's hoping your holiday season was truly one made of a million magic moments that will be memories to hold dear forever!
