November 19, 2008: Decorating for Christmas

  Well, with all of the bad news on television – depressing actually – we decided we needed to spruce up the place and get in the holiday spirit.  🙂  So, we went down to storage and pulled out one of our Christmas trees!  We found a container of decorations and brought it back up to the house in Lone Oak.  Daisy was more than happy to help with all of the decorating.  She carried off a few bulbs, some hooks, and got caught up in the ribbon a few times.

What can I do to help?

Julie Kohn bought me this snow last year – I put some
in a bowl – added water and WAALAA – SNOW!!!  Last
time I did this we had heavy snow the next day.  😉
