It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

The snow flurries were just beginning to fall as we brought the tree into the house. This afternoon we left the house in CT early and headed to a Christmas tree lot we had noticed in town.

The first tree we looked at just seemed like the perfect choice. We loaded it up in my red truck and headed home to Rye Brook.

Got 'er done!

Got ‘er done!

Several years ago Peter and I made the most cat-impervious Christmas tree stand ever. We took a 4′ x 4′ piece of plywood, drilled holes to match those in the base of the Christmas tree stand and wired the stand to the board. The Christmas tree is still a giant kitty toy and the ornaments will be strewn about the room, but the tree will never tip over.

Hurry up, I'm nekkid!

  1. What an incredibly cute, Yule-y post! Neckidness won’t last long…

  2. A lovely tree! I usually spend hours picking just the right one and then discover it has a significant flaw. We’ve learned to love flaws. I go home to Chicago on Friday the 13th :) It will be a sad but good to be with the kids. I’m even looking forward to snow and cold. Ferd said he was cold Thanksgiving but had a wonderful time. How that would please Bobbie. Do you remember Darlene Jones? She was a good friend of your moms. She died last week. Our Sherry Group and New Years Eve Group grow smaller and smaller. Merry Christmas and Happy 2014 :) Love Dawn
