Our Tree Is Up!

Pic 1 - My aunt comes over to help decorate the tree, and brings the Boy chocolate and gumdrop cake.

Pic 3 - The tree is up!

It was a very Christmas-y afternoon. Peter, my aunt and uncle, and Peter's Mum stopped by to help with the tree. I made mulled apple cider, there was Christmas music, and that night, after the place was cleaned up and Boy was in bed, Lampoon's Christmas Vacation was on.

Love the tree! Did you have trouble getting the Boy to sleep that night? He looks pretty excited! LOL
We watched National Lampoons Christmas Vaction the other night too - when it was over, my husband looked at me and said, "Okay, NOW it's Christmas".

Beautiful tree! I love the colored lights, too. Best part of the season. And post the mulled cider recipe...I could go for some of that!

Love the pictures!! It's the best when the feeling finally hits.
The boy is looking sooo much older.
I use the same beads as you do.
Please post the recipe for the gumdrop cake. It sounds very good.
(My blog is being stupid and I'm feeling so left out. I actually thought you were offended at my language.)

Karen: I've only been able to get into your blog off and on for about a week, and not at all since the weekend, and now I can't get into Brandy's! I think it's something to do with that Beta thing!
