tree all lit up
Arrived home from Kauai on Monday night. Yesterday the weather here was unbelievably warm. I was wearing a tank top and felt like maybe I was still on island!
I decided I wanted to have a little Christmas decoration so I got my son Tony and we scouted the property for a tree to cut down. Knowing that we have no plans for a Christmas celebration at our house and that my oldest son won't be coming home we chose a funny little tree instead of a towering one. I only brought out one string of lights and a few ornaments. We stuck the tree in a pot full of dirt and set it on the fireplace ledge. We have something to put the few wrapped presents under but this is the extent of decorating this year. Just a "charlie brown" tree.
