It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It has been snowing and blowing, enough to make “trouble” already – we are celebrating our second snow day. The house is filled with boys, who are having a great time playing games and sampling my baking.   There is quite a bit of snow on the ground here and a little more a few miles inland.

We went to get a Christmas tree this last weekend

The first idea was to go to Bear Lake, there is a real Christmas tree farm there – but first we would check out the lot in Beulah.  Ok that’s where we found a tree that was as close to perfect as possible.   We paid for it and went home.

I am missing a whole lot of ornaments but I found nearly all of my icicles and crystal drops, which is the most important thing.  I am not done with the tree yet – every time I walk by, I stick another thing on it.

And did I tell you that Cindy painted the living room while Mike and I were on vacation?  She did.  A great paint job too but it has to get changed.  Here you can see why.

It has to go. It has to go soon because I am beginning to like the way it looks

Bear

Bear has been so sick for the last week, I couldn’t stand to see him suffer any longer.   During the night Bear barked around 3AM and I went to see what he needed and then went back upstairs only to be called down again by him a few minutes later.  It seemed to me that Bear wanted company so I decided to spend the rest of the night downstairs and close to him.  And then it was time for him to leave.    Mike took him to Dr. Nelson’s yesterday morning…

I hate to tell ya…

I am having camera trouble again!  After installing the new Windows 7 on this here machine,  my camera’s software won’t work anymore.  I tried updating, blah, blah, blah.

I am trying to get the pictures of our excursion to buy the Christmas tree  off the camera and on to the computer.  I am working feverishly and even “suffered” from a bad attitude, a rotten mood, yelling at LuAnn over the phone – kind of day yesterday because of it.   So bear with me my peeps, I will be back with more interesting stuff for you.
