Christmas Is Creeping Up Quickly ~

Well the Christmas tree went up and I have to say it looks pretty good. It really isn't as shapely as last years and decorating didn't change the shape of it. I thought maybe once it thawed out it would 'shape up' but it didn't ... lol. Oh well, my husband likes it but I still like last years tree much better. It's hard looking at real trees that you buy off a lot because most of them are tied up and even it you untie them it's hard to tell until you get them home. Plus ... it was freezing out and after I made my husband untie about 10 of them, (of course he said he loved every one of them) I could see it was time to pick one ... lol. Why is it that men aren't 'fussy' like women???

Ha ha ... I noticed after doing this layout that the tree looks crooked. It's really not, I must of been holding the camera crooked ... lol.

Well, we had our first sprinkling of snow on December 1st. We woke up to it but it melted once the sun was on it for a few hours. They are calling for snow tomorrow. We'll see if it accumulates. It's sure cold enough~!!!

Lil, your tree looks great!! The best part about having a real Christmas tree, as opposed to an artificial one, is the fact that they are NOT perfect.

You might enjoy this cute story...
"Why Christmas Trees Aren't Perfect"

Quote from the end of the story, "If you walk among evergreens today, you will find, along with rabbits, birds, and other happy living things, many trees like Small Pine. You will see a drooping limb, which gives cover, a gap offering a warm resting place, or branches ragged form feeding hungry animals.

For, as have many of us, the trees have learned that living for the sake of others makes us most beautiful in the eyes of God."

Happy Holidays :-)
