See yesterday's blog post for what this tree looked like before it was decorated! The poor tree under all that white fluff really took a beating. The weight of the flocking, the lights, the bead garland, and all those blue and silver ornaments really took a toll on that poor skinny tree. But, it really looked snow covered now, didn't it?
That's Bret in the pic, one of my best friends from the CA days. God often blesses us with tremendous friends all through our life, and Bret has remained a good friend and loyal communicator for the past 8 years. He is a hoot, one of the funniest people I know, and talented to boot. B, I hope you don't mind being out there in the blogsphere. That was a fun night, the night that tree was decorated. It turned out to be quite a wild party, about 12 of those ornaments got smashed, and a couple of ashtrays and cocktails glasses got broken as well. But, it was great fun. The next picture is not the white tree, but it is the closest pic I could find... that shows what this tree looked like before it got flocked!
Thanks for checking in and reading my special holiday blog posts.
Days til we go cut down our tree...11! Temps are still in the '70's here, we have the windows and doors open, whew, it's warm for November.
