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
