When You're Good, You're Good!

I put up our Christmas tree tonight. I'm wishing I had a digital camera so I could snap a picture and show it off -- I'm really proud of it. I got all kinds of new decorations last year on the 75% off clearance Wal-Mart does the week after Christmas, and for the first time in my whole entire life, my tree is color-coordinated. We started with white lights, then silver tinsel. Then we added (why am I saying we? I did it!) I put a garland of silver and blue beads around it, then hung silver, blue and white ornaments all over it. I then accented with small blue bows and put a white (wingless) angel on top. It's downright gorgeous. If you live in my neck of the woods, you should come check it out.

My first thought when reading this post is that it seems a little early to be putting up the tree. Then I remembered that our tradition has been to deck the halls the day after Thanksgiving, which was nearly a week ago!

Double Yikes!

Tristi, you inspire me. I'm going to take the painted Jack-O-Lanterns off the front porch and get out the nativity today. I'll bet I could talk the girls into that after school.

Sounds beautiful, Tristi. And a wingless angel to boot. Yay!

Something else worth cheering about is on my blog today. I'm giving away a brand new compact DVD player--even shipping is free. Hop on over and check it out.

I have no idea where your neck of the woods is, or I'd come check it out in person. It sounds simply lovely!!

It sounds lovely.

Our tree is going up this weekend...hopefully. It's usually the first FHE after Thanksgiving for us, but unfortunately no elves came to decorate our house in our absence.

Sounds so lovely! Hope you get a camera for Christmas so we can get some pictage!

Misty, I'm in Orem, Utah. Anywhere near you?

Kimberly, I don't know about the camera, but I sure would like one!
