Christmas Tree...finally!!

Well, we still don't have the living room *exactly* as I plan to leave it for Christmas, but we *did* make a spot for the tree (hmmm...perhaps I should say, "*Billy* made a spot for the tree"!!), and it is finally *up*. Yay!! We haven't finished decorating it yet...but it is up, lights are on, and it does have *some* ornaments. One of my favorite handmade ornaments broke (apparently a cat had made it's bed on one of the Christmas boxes and broke several glass ornaments...grrrr!), leaving a string of red bead garland that Peter thought was very cool...so we are going to try to get some more bead garland to match, and hopefully finish all the ornaments in the next couple of days.

This is *really* late for us to get a tree up...we usually have it up before Peter's birthday. Due to the space situation and other issues, that didn't happen this year...and I've been very surprised. The kids haven't been anxious at all about it. *I* was the one stressing about not having a tree up yet.:) But it is *up*, and I will post more pictures when we have it completely decorated. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I love these clear plastic zippered pouches. They are by Modella and they are at Wal-Mart. My 13 year old daughter wants me to get her some now for her Christmas stocking so she can use them in her bag.
