I think this will probably be my only post this week.
I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas, or happy whatever holiday you happen to celebrate.
My family is here which makes me very happy.
My kids helped get a Christmas tree on Saturday.
Picking a tree out this late had some disadvantages.
Our tree has no top.
(On a positive note, it was discounted $30 because it was a Pointless Tree.)
On Sunday night we discovered our usual angel tree topper couldn’t hide the topless-ness of the tree.
We improvised with a Santa Fairy/Elf thingy ….
A big, fat, Pointless Tree.
It makes me laugh … a tree to match the kind of year 2015 has turned out to be.
As one of my kids said, we are “limping to the finish line” of 2015.
2015 sure started out as a great year, but the last six months have been a familial mess.
(There’s a better way to describe it, but I’m trying to keep my language clean!)
For now, I’m going to just focus on having my family home.
They’re going to take turns helping me wrap presents since my arm is exceptionally bad this year.
Everyone has been “group cooking,” and we’re making do with circumstances the way they are.
I’d like some bacon!!
Fred is keeping everyone entertained … he’s such a clown.
Only the most critical Christmas traditions are being kept this year ….
Simplifying is the motto for Christmas 2015.
I’ll be having lots of visitors in and out of the house this week.
I’m expecting pure holiday chaos going forward these next few days.
I hope the next few days are merry and bright for YOU!
