7 December

the fun

I don't use a lot of silver and gold in my decorating.

I must admit that I am not such a fan of things that don't look natural.

I was able to find a glittery ribbon to tie around 

Malachy the Teddy bear

the good

It was our cousins weekend!!

We try to get together once a year or so

and it's always fun during the Christmas season!

the random

The biggest fundraiser of the year for the PTO on our rather tiny island 
is the Christmas tree sale in the park across the street.

All day long on Sunday I watched them load trees onto the cars....

I swear every other car was red and it looked so festive to see the

families tying green trees to the tops of all those red cars. 

I could smell them every time I opened my door!

One family even walked the path through the wood with a wagon!

The older boy was pulling the wagon with his little brother in it

then they loaded a tree into the wagon and all walked home through the wooded path!

we won't get our tree till next weekend when the boys are here....

it's so close we can carry it home. 

I can't wait!!

I am joining up with creating Christmas this week
