Aren't they gorgeous?

I rush downstairs and peep through the hole, and sure enough, someone is standing there, but I can't tell much about them. I open the door and am surprised with a big arrangement of flowers.

Who on earth could have sent these? I thank the nice delivery lady and wish her a Merry Christmas, and shut the door because it is only about 40 degrees outside.

After ripping open the card, I get a warm feeling all over. They're from my family to me and Bug. I'm sure that my Mom is behind it all, but she sends love from everyone, so it's okay.

Thanks for the flowers, and we're thinking of you too. Only 11 more days until I fly into Louisville....you'd better get ready!


O, What a Grand Tree!

Our Tree

We had a great time picking out our tree this year. We went to Jerry's, a local home improvement center, on the recommendation of friends. We got a huge ( almost 7 foot) tree that is about 4 feet across at the base. It's all prettied up with lights, ornaments, snowflakes, and a twist of silver garland too.

I think it grew on the way home from the store, because our sad little star looks too small for the tree, and it's only 2 inches below the ceiling. We cut it really close!
