OH CHRISTMAS TREE OH CHRISTMAS TREE....

The weather here has been insane. I mean it is December 16th and we have barely even had so much as a flurry. It has been in the 50's most of the week and the other day when I was out and about on the subway I saw tons of people in thongs. THONGS!!!! Middle of December and people are out in their sandals. Crazy! It makes me sad because I love winter and I love snow, at this rate we will be lucky if we get snow by Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, Chris and I finally got our Christmas tree last night. We didn't end up cutting our own. Mostly because it was getting so close to Christmas and we just needed to get one. So we went to a nearby lot and got one. We also finally got a picture we liked for our Christmas cards which I will be putting in the mail tomorrow. For those of you up in the Great White North you may get yours a little late....oops!

Today we went for breakfast to this cute little restaurant called Auntie B's. It was tiny and so good. We love finding local little family joints like that. I think that may be our new favorite breakfast spot for a while. After breakfast we headed home and spent the afternoon working in the yard, finally getting rid of all the old dead leaves. After supper we decorated the tree, I am so glad to have it all up and done and now other than sending out our Christmas cards and shopping for each other I can relax and enjoy the rest of the holiday season.
And yes we have Bob the Builder stockings. My sister in law Susan made them for us last year. Actually she made them for her boys only realizing after the fact she made one of them with the girl from the show. And it wouldn't have gone over well giving one of them Bob and the other the girl. So anyways we have them now, and they rock. We also have SUPER COOL Oilers and Avalanche stockings that we just got from Chris's parents this Christmas. How awesome are those?! Sweet!

Thongs! LOL It took me a minute to figure out you meant on their feet and not their behinds too! LOL

Love the stockings! And why do yours have presents in them already? It isn't Christmas Eve? ;)

I too thought of the other thongs!! It made me wonder what had happened to the general population of Boston since I've been gone.

Your tree is so pretty!! Does Belle keep out of it?
