November 15, 2009
Well, here we are on the beach, Sat. Nov. 14th... can't believe that in just two short weeks, we will be out looking for our Christmas Tree.
It's kinda hard to get in the holiday spirit for decorating and gift shopping when the temps are in the '70's, but we will put forth an effort to get in the mood for the season, cause, yes, we are those annoying types who use the days off after Thanksgiving to deck the halls and start wrapping the gifts. Christmas is such a joyful time of year filled with happiness and love, that I want to experience for as long as I can, before the dark of winter and the long cold months really set in. Not to mention that to me and mine the Christmas season, preceded by Advent is very important to our spiritual lives as Christians.
Here is a pic of last year's tree... when getting ready to get ready for the tree pick'n it might be good to remind me what a nice tree we had in 2008... kinda raises the bar on the tree search for 2009.
Days til we go get our tree for 2009... 13!
