Tradition







Today, Joel and I were able to endeavor on our annual Christmas tradition. We had a great day. I had a meeting at school today, but after that, we met at our area IHOP (International House of Pancakes) for brunch. Then we split up and did some Christmas shopping (we're almost ALL done). We then went and got our REAL Christmas tree! It smells so pretty! We asked what kind of tree hold it's needles best since we are getting it kind of early. Of course, they told us the most expensive, but it is a beautiful tree and it has smelled the whole apartment like pine! I don't even need to buy any candles to make the apartment smell good. Of couse, no Christmas tradition would be complete without some White Chocolate Mocha and Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks! The tree is decorated, almost done with shopping, and even got some laundry done...thanks to my wonderful and productive hubby! Enjoy the pictures! It was a great day of tradition!

Fun tradition. I like the Starbucks part too--been craving Peppermint Mocha all week. We are going Saturday to get our real live tree!! WooHoo!! I am excited. The shopping - well that is another story. That might happen about Dec 19! Until then our schedule is full. Your tree is beautiful! Love and hugs!!

Great to hear from you Kim. I do remember you...absolutely. I have fond memories of my time at Lakeview. Stay in touch. You and Joel will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I miss having a real tree! Every real tree we've purchased since living here has completely fallen apart bt mid-December. So we caved 3 years ago and bought a fake one. It's so sad. But yours is gorgeous! And I'll have to try the peppermint mocha...a Starbucks just opened 2 exits south of my house! How convenient!

I loved East of Eden - what did you think? I am hoping that Grapes of Wrath is just as good when I get to it next December.
