Busy, Fun Day!

It's been a busy and fun day -- but my, has it been a LONG and tiring day, too...

Anyway, time for a glass of eggnog (with some spiced rum) and a nap. Marilyn and I need to go shopping at WalMart later on...

We decided to put our artificial tree down in the family room, and get a flocked tree for the living room. But let's just say it wasn't all that easy to FIND a flocked tree! We went on a long hunt for one yesterday (!!!) without getting close to success. It didn't occur to us to go to Dennis' 7 Dees until today, when I found them googling on the computer, happily. So in rush hour traffic we headed out...

It was SO COLD while we were there I thought we'd die! And much of the selection process (etc.) took place outside in the cold. But it's a lovely tree that just fit in our car to bring it home! So it's standing waiting for decorations, as is the other tree, now moved downstairs.

You can see some photos below...

Well, I'm off for nog and a (much-needed) nap!
