Our 2006 Christmas Tree


A few weekends ago while on the way home after having a morning coffee and conversation date with Paula, I stopped by Home Depot to see if they had any Norfolk Pine trees - and they did! So, I bought the one that spoke to me most out of the bunch of Norfolk Pines in the garden section.

However, even though Bill got the boxes of decorations down from the garage attic, the tree stayed in our garage until last weekend. It's bugged me the past few years that our tree looked kinda plain so I wanted to find garlands to go with our new-ish decorations. Michaels Craft Store had just what I wanted: strands of red beads! I also bought a few strands of icicle garlands.

Last weekend, even though I was really really really tired and didn't feel much like getting off the couch (at all), I finally pushed myself onto my feet, brought the tree into the house, and decorated it.

I've been enjoying the sparkles each evening!


I'm sorry, but that isn't a "tree"; it's a branch that fell off a real Christmas tree.

As they teach us in law school: res ipsa loquitur, meaning "the thing speaks for itself."

Nice to see holiday spirit infecting the house. I've been listening to a holiday music channel I created over at www.pandora.com.

Thanks, Greg! Spoken like the son of a true Grinch.

I laughed and laughed and laughed until tears began!

See you Friday! Love, Mom
