They are content with anything! They turn tradition on its head and make themselves smile over simple things.
No one has had time to go out looking for a tree in way out yonder... and there are none in our backyard, save a few scruffy sage brush, an elderberry or two and some chokecherry bushes. I thought to buy one but I always found myself in town with the Honda and not the suburban. It saves on gas, but it doesn't cart trees too well.
This morning I mentioned that I could go get a tree for the girls to decorate today and they said, "You know, we just might be able to come up with a different plan - a more cost effective plan.
And they did. Our tree is very special because it's different. It was built together.

|A little frosty fake snow for touch up...|
|Pine cones and raffia.|
|Red lights and pine scented candles.|
|Baby Jesus is wearing a green striped jumper these days.|

but only in the house.
What's with having to rake leaves the 2 weeks before the New Year?
The kiddos should be sledding!!
