Oh Christmas tree....

This tree was such fun to get!
It took 1 tree to look at and we said YES! This is an absolute record, for we usually hop around a wet, dark and otherwise uncomfortable place and pull out tree after tree just to discuss that the right tree is still out elsewhere!
Well, at least we had gotten it on the most rainy Sunday....

It had to dry up in the garage for a few days.

Our dog peeks suspiciously through the door... What's coming???? He hates changes...

Then we placed it in the winter/fireplace/music room...

And today we all got together after dinner and pulled out all our collected and beautiful old ornaments, filled in the lights, strung the gold ribbons, danced around, played a few Christmas songs and made fairly merry around the tree....

We even managed to take the holiday photo, which now needs to be send out, I know, it's awfully late.....

And even the dog is content again!

We marvel at this wonderful magical tree, reminding us with it's shine of the glory of these days, it's light will guides us into a new year and help us gather round and count our blessings!
This tree again reminds me to take a break once in a while and to hold still, to admire it's beauty, listen to the lovely whispers coming from it's branches:
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me....let us embrace nature and nurture family and friends, feel the love between us and make it last!
This is my Christmas message and I like to share it with you!
