I love Christmas trees. If I thought I could get away with it, I would have a tree in every single room of the house. I decided that this year I was going to have a second tree. I just wanted a little one and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. I was thinking about going to the store and seeing if they had their trees discounted yet when Jack stepped in with a suggestion.
Jack took me for a little walk out on the side hill. Guess what we found?
Isn't it lovely?!
Good thing I brought a shovel and a bucket.
I didn't want to cut it down; I wanted to try and save the root so that we can plant it in the front yard after Christmas. Sort of like the old John Douglas Fir Tree (that's a family joke).
We managed to get the tree levered out of the ground with most of the root intact.
Do you remember me telling you about saving all that dirt in the pots at the end of the summer?
Now you see why we do that.
I had a few small ornaments to trim it
Then I got the wreath put up.
It's not fancy, but I like it.
So does Jack.
Indoors I got our manger scene fixed to my liking. Old navy blue sheets are quite useful.
menman is still traveling from Switzerland
And one of my favorite ~ and quite important ~ decorations made it out to the piano:
It was quite a day, with this and baking.
I wore Mr. Marvelous' kitten out with all the activity.
Seems that Jack was a little tired too!
Now back to the baking....
