oh christmas tree....oh christmas tree....

Evelyn Joy, Suzanne, Jonathan, Charlotte Claire, Emily, and Camille....trying to choose a tree....

It wasn't rocket science, just go to the corner of the barn where the cheapest ones were. Paul told me that little tip. He was right. In the very corner of the barn, far to the back, I found it. The cheapest tree. Twenty bucks. Oh, but Mom, they said, This Tree Over Here Is Prettier. Nah. I had found our tree. It wasn't as lovely as some of those spruces, with the long fragrant needles, it wasn't as tall or full as some of the sixty dollar trees...but we brought it home. Jonathan is a handy guy to have around for things like setting up Christmas trees. Mom is not good, Daddy usually does these things. But, we managed. Sonja K. helped test the lights, and we strung them up in no time. By the time it was ready for the ornaments, I had to leave for the Dome, wah.

Samuel James (my future soldier), and Joseph Michael, taking a little break. It was busy enough tonight, the Syracuse University basketball team in in the top ten in the nation, and for good reason. They win games. They have not lost yet this year. Lots of fans, busy concessions.

I am tired now.....

We've had our tree for over a week now and it's standing in the living room naked. :P
