Bellagio Fountains, and Trimming the Tree

I think the next time we head south, we might just stop in Vegas to see the Bellagio fountains. (And maybe Donny and Marie.)

So do you have a Christmas tree yet? I think we're going to get a permit and go trudge through knee-deep snow up in the hills to cut our own again this year. It's one of my husband's favorite traditions. (Just thinking about it makes me shiver.) Then we have to drag it into the house and put it in the stand and wind the lights around all the branches and put the ornaments on. It's a lot of work, but once we're done it's nice. I think this little guy has a way to make the decorating more fun.


Lots of contests going on right now. First of all, there's my Boxing Day Giveaway. Just comment on any or all posts from December 1st to 25th. You'll be entered in the drawing once for each post you comment on. I'll draw names on December 26th.

  1. Ah yes the annual hunt for "the tree" also occurs at our house. However I am the one who stays home and has Thanksgiving dinner ready when they all troop back. Alas they've staked out future trees for several years in advance and I'm not happy to see them home quite so early while I"m still in the the midst of preparations.
