It is a tradition the weekend after Thanksgiving,
my husband and I go get our tree with my
brother and SIL.
We were so happy to have my twin cousins
in town so they could go with us.
I never can seem to get a good picture
We went and got our trees
we always get some funny looks with 2 trees tied up on top
Had a great lunch and visited with my brother
then on home to get the tree up and make dinner.
But wait, it is Santa..............
Santa and Prancer!
Oh Santa...which twin is naughty and which is nice?
I love it when my kitchen is a hub-bub of activity
Home to make dinner
I made the sauce for lasagna and Mr. and Susan layered it
Sheryl and I were working on updating the
Charleston Illinois Riot website
The software on it is difficult sometimes and
we had a little victory and were happy.
the tree was up
and we ate dinner then watched
The next day was some shopping
and we went to see the movie
Home to eat leftovers and decorate the tree
it was fun telling them about the history behind certain ornaments
Mr. putting up my angel my Daddy bought
me when I was a little girl
turn off the lights and admire
no holes really, that black hole is where there is a twinkle light.
I have to have some twinkle!
how about a treat
home made hot chocolate with whip cream and
chocolate chip peppermint cookies.
Served on my fiesta ware Christmas dishes I bought last year.
whipped cream mustache
you silly girl!
One more day off today
so we headed out to
Home Goods and Trader Joe's
for some shopping.
Then they will head home and back to work
for me tomorrow.
These weekends are what wonderful
holidays are meant to be, family time.
So very blessed.
I will look at my tree all season and
think of us putting it up together.
So now some of you are asking about those
they live at 1515 and go on my
Grandmothers aluminum tree.
I will be doing it in a couple of weeks.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
