our tree

This is our pitiful Charlie Brown Christmas tree.  And it's the Big Tree!  We have a tiny aqua SpongeBob tree (I don't have a picture of it).  I was determined to not bring much Christmas junk, and I didn't.  But this is pitiful.  It's tempting to buy a real tree - but we don't have enough ornaments!  I suppose we could make ornaments...  Ha-ha-ha-ha! 

It really doesn't feel Christmassy around here.  And the hot weather doesn't help matters.  But people are really making an effort to do it right.  Soon we are going to have to make that drive around town to look at lights.

And so it begins... one of my toes is hurting.  From walking.  I've been walking all this time, not one squeak of complaint from my feet.  ppfffffftttt.  I'm such a hypochondriac.  Is that even the right term for it??  I'm a weenie.  An excuse maker.   Whatevuh.

What am I doing right now?  I'm waiting for butter to soften.  LOL!  About as thrilling as watching paint dry.  I'm going to attempt to make buckeyes.  Those chocolate dipped peanut butter balls.  Just a little something to give the neighbors and mailman.  If they survive the night.

Funny you mention to make ornaments, I just buy candy canes and put them with fancy bows I can reuse every year. There is a place for everyone's tree no matter how grand or small. It's the meaning of Christmas that is so special.



In Christ,

when I was stationed in the Philippines as a sinlge person, I got together with friends and bought a tree to put in our lounge . byt he time we got it back fromteh exchange, most of the meedles were gone...and it made chrlie Brown's tree look as grand as the one in the White House!  I still say it is the meaning behind it!

Coming out of lurkdom------Buckeyes--YUM.  I have already made one batch and have the ingredients to do another.  Your tree is cute.  We live in Florida now and I have never gotton used to a "warm" Christmas.  It's the only day out of the year I wish it would snow.  By the day aftern, I will remember why I love it here in Florida.
