December 22nd

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!

    I quite like your Pointless Tree. It’s kinda like the rest of this year has been – not perfect, but we make the most of what we do have. And the decorations look great. My tree is made of three coathangers, a string of fairy lights and tinsel! It stands about 15″ tall, and can go anywhere. 🙂

    People in and out? Drinks, crisps, nuts, pretzels – done. Nice and simple. 😉

    Have a great time with your family, enjoy the holiday chaos, and maybe don’t give Fred the bacon. ;D

    Love the tree and your post. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    p.s. I have my tree up for two weeks, it is pre-lit/artificial and has a good shape/pretty, but have not had time to decorate it. 🙁

    Simplifying is a good motto no matter what. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

      I agree … the simpler the better – especially this year!

    Suzanne, that’s a lovely tree, if you didn’t tell anyone about its pointlessness they probably wouldn’t notice (but calling it a Pointless Tree is fun!).
    Relax and enjoy the chaos, having your family and friends there, and Fred of course, is the main thing.
    A merry Christmas to you & your family!
