Merry Christmas!


This is a picture of our tree that we bought when my husband finally got home from his latest "trip" for his job as a pilot in the US Air Force.  We also waited until our middle daughter got home from visiting with my parents to do any decorating, so that we could all do it together as a family.

This little tree is very much a Charlie Brown tree.  We picked it from the two dozen or so that were left on Monday.  It was only FIVE dollars!!!  It makes us all happy, smells good, and I like to think that we helped this little tree fulfill it's only purpose - the one for which it was grown and cut down.  I didn't want it to be mulched without having spent its time in our house for Christmas. I know it is silly, but I always feel sad for the leftover trees.

I hope that each of you has a very wonderful end of your year and a merry Christmas!!  If you celebrate something else like Kwanzaaor Hanukkah - whatever you celebrate, I hope it's an enjoyable time for you!!!  Not sure when the next post will be - we're enjoying time with the DH at home and of course doing the things that most folks do on Christmas day (this was a pre-scheduled post).  Take care!!
