My Christmas tree is still not up. Denny's job is to put it up and I do all the rest. He let me down this weekend. I did get the rest of the house decorated, but I have a super busy weekend coming up sooooooooo…….. I'd like to put it up Friday night. fingers crossed. And I may go and get those lights this week.

I'll check Lowe's for sure then. There is one right by my house.

Your tree isn't up? Oh Denny.........

We are the freezing place so we have to go elsewhere. Vegas is always fun, lots of variety of things to do after the games which makes team dinners and the like easy to plan.

Here are a few more pics as requested. goodvibes: I added some ribbon to the tree because I thought it looked a little bare.

Here is a wreath we decorated. It's a zoom shot because it's up high but Michael put in a hidden Mickey. Love him!



Here's a view from the loft:



Then looking up to the loft:



One of my favorite Mickey heads:



Cute little Minnie living in our tree:



Pluto, always a happy pup:



A couple more Mickey heads:

You're sweet, thank you. I'm a sucker for lights; sunlight, moonlight, colored, white. I love them.

I've GOT to get my tree up. I love you Mickey bulbs. They are so adorable!

Denny got me those lights today. They do look a tad different than the old school retro version. They are a little bit smaller (not much) and the have tiny groves in the bulb. You'll have to check them out when you go to Lowes. I'm still pretty excited to use mine.

Yes. He does. Stat!!


I can't wait to see your lights. Hopefully Lowe's will have some after the holidays and I can pick them up on sale.




So I spaced posting about a very important trip change. There's a good side and bad side but the good totally cancels out the bad.


Michael is not flying home now on Chloe's birthday. We're going to leave So Cal now on 12/23 . We lose a day of vacation but we get Michael for an extra 2 1/2 days and I don't have to do all of the driving..... or any for that matter. He's so excited to be staying. It was his idea to cover his shift and stay with us. I am so happy. Tonight he text and said he can't wait for drinks at the Hearthstone Lounge. The kids are elated too.

I'm guessing only total Disney nerds drive 24 hours for a 108 hour vacation, not including the driving?

Michael works Christmas Eve so we'll go to my inlaws as planned. Michael is in charge of finding a buddy to pick up and drop off the dogs at our house on 12/23.

The third game the got killed but played well. The other team played so well, like MLS quality. I could not believe they were U12 bits. They passed liked pros. Our boys foot skills are amazing but these guys were so fast, we just couldn't get there.
good, hopefully the rest of the order arrives today or tomorrow.

on the hat trick! How exciting

K's tournament was kind of a bust, I think they tied 2 and won one. She did get some new schools expressing interest (Cal Lutheran, can't recall what else) so that was good. Except she missed a day of school as her mom goofed up and booked the wrong return flight!

Pretty sure I've seen them at target too

I had a similar panic. Not so much about the trip but what I need to get done at work between now and then. I really need to squish in a quick work trip and trying to figure it out around commitments here is making my head spin. Oh yeah, and shop lol.

LOVE the ornaments! Our tree isn't up yet either, too crazy with the anniversary getaway, in laws here yada yada. We don't usually do it the 1st weekend anyway. Should be Sat/Sun though. Almost have everything up now except for the tree, outside lights/wreaths and one last box of "stuff" I haven't even gotten into and the garland for the stairs. I want some new "good" lighted garland SO bad but really can't justify it this year, at all.

I'm so happy, thank you. He travels so much lately (with more to come) so it feels extra special to have him at Disneyland.

I wrap my own garland in lights still because I won't pony up for lighted garland. I'm not cheap but my garland is fake and in great shape, never going to die.

Please post your tree and decorations too.

Sorry K's tournament was a bust but glad she got more college attention.

See update on this trip change.

I'm sure it will all arrive. The UPS guy thinks I'm a shopaholic. He's here every single day. My kids don't even ask if its for them, they know its not.

Where are you going for work?

I'd only pony up for it for the living room as they have one that matches our tree and it would be worth it out there.

Yes! We should hear on her first choice soon. It's a bit nerve wracking.

OK. I'm glad that Michael can be there for the whole trip and you won't be rushed when we get together on Saturday.

Now what the He11 Is a friggin hat trick????????????????????

Y'all keep talking about it. I think there were at least three other things you mentioned in your soccer mom post, but everyone seems really happy about him getting a hat trick and I have no idea what this is!

Hat trick is 3 in a row; especially if it is positive. We use the same terminology in cricket when someone gets three batters out with three successive deliveries. Hmm.....I think it original use was for cricket.

So in football, you would have scored three goals.
