I like this shot of Gooser.
Here's Don posing with a tree we were considering--but we ultimately rejected it.And Teddy with a "baby" tree that we also rejected!
Pickle says "Get me out of here! I'm cold!"
When we got home we had our traditional tree trimming party which included lots of food.
Eggnog, of course!
Veggie platter--had to get those vitamins in! Pickle single-handedly ate all of the tomatoes.Lil' Smokies!Assorted cheeses...
...and salami.Mini quiches.Later we had cookies and hot chocolate--but no pics--sorry!
Here are the boys hanging out by the fireplace.And Gooser dancing with our giant singing and dancing Santa--I know Jenni Jiggety will appreciate this!And here is the finished product:And with the boys (Pickle refused to be photographed.)A flashless shot:I love all my ornaments, but find that I am most attracted to are the vintage ones I have collected over the years.
I love this Santa in a hot air balloon. The balloon and Santa part is paper.
One of my many elves--I'm sure Candid Carrie will like him--or not!A pretty vintage bell:I like to clip these Santas to a lamp:And one more of Gooser by the tree.
My favorite quotes from tree-decorating:
Me (after I saw the tree in the stand): Why is it so big?
Don: That's what she said.
Then there's: "Just stick the stick up the angel's butt and stick it on the tree!"
