Deck the Halls

We went to Blue Star Tree Farm today in Fenville to cut down our Christmas tree. Picked out a 6 foot Frasier Fur. A little smaller than the ones we've picked out in the past but I think it looks cute. Stopped at Crane's to eat lunch when we were finished getting the tree. I have never eaten in the restaurant there. Man was it good. I got an Orchard Salad and a cup of chilli. It is so unique inside with all of the antique stuff. We got a dozen of their famous cider donuts to take home. Sooooo good!

Smells so good when you first cut it down

Yum!I found this stuffed dog "Betty" funny and slightly creepy. She's from Chicago...



Per Aunt Carol's request, here are a couple of pictures of our Christmas decorations.....

LOOKS FANTASTIC. I love it, all of it. I love your tree and the added trees I got you for your Nativity. It all looks so GLAM, I am getting the feeling of Christmas and may have to start on my house. Robert always tells me every year he does not "get into" Christmas and then last year when I told him I was not getting a tree, he told me to quick make one, it would not be the same w/o a tree. Lord, have mercy, here I was at the last minute painting poles red and configuring them into 2 trees that looked like Sam Hill, but he LOVED it

I like those Frazier Furs, nice choice. They say they last longer and the needles donnot fall off as quick.

Betty...I agree...slightly (or a little more than slighty) creepy!
