ALL SHOTS TAKEN 7-9 DECEMBER 2012

every year carl and i get our tree on a friday night, let it settle, put the lights on it on saturday and get the decorating done on sunday! this year we had even more time because i took friday off so we had the luxury of getting the tree in the day light and getting the royal treatment as well because no one else was there!!!

we have been going to the same place for years and know the people there as well as their golden retriever, diego!! it is always a pleasure, but this year we really had a grand time with the guy picking out just the right tree for us!!! while the tree was being looked for and trussed up, i walked around taking shots:

i took a billion shots of the berries--and i am sorry to say that i can't have them in the house--the kitties would eat them and i don't think that would be a good thing!!!!

we have our tree right underneath a skylight–our little condo is actually the original attic of our three condo house–it’s cozy and comfy and just right for us!!!

the yellow submarine ornament was given to us last year by our dear girls: Rachel and Megan. also notice the beautiful photo of the good humor truck by Debbie Candeub--Damiec~!!!!
