Christmas Activity December 17, 2010

Far Guy has been a real trooper..he doesn’t feel the best..he is getting a cold.  Yesterday we accomplished what sometimes seems impossible..the Christmas Letter.  We worked on it in the car, we threw ideas around..he had rewrites of the rewrites.  Years ago I put Far Guy in charge of the Christmas Letter..it is to be interesting, informative and humorous..and it is. It should not be a Debbie Downer.  It is also stuffed into the envelopes along with a photograph and addressed and stamped and will be mailed tomorrow.   If you read this blog then you already know what the letter says....Chance wrote a paragraph.  I might share the photo with you next week.

IMG_9903The Santa that I carved was wired to the old wreath that I made for Far Guys Mom one year…it hangs on the railing upstairs.

IMG_9901 The downstairs tree has lights..no decorations yet…it is a start!

The weather is marvelous..in the teens and twenties during the day..shear bliss!

The list we made the other day is keeping us on track.  Today is another day of odds and ends..today I bake the first batch of pumpkin bread and when the smell permeates the house..I will wander upstairs and add some more Shiny Brites to the TALL tree and listen to some rock and roll oldies.  Sometimes Far Guy can be a smart ass..yesterday he came upstairs and said..just coming up to enjoy all the wonderful Christmas music:)

  1. You really are in the mood...and the Christmas groove now and rock and roll oldies are better than no music at all. Your decorations look nice.

  8. Too late to pull off this year but I'm thinking next year of writing a Christmas letter that is all made up stuff, like that I've moved to New York and am in the production of Cats.

  9. Rockin around that Christmas Tree is a rock and roll Christmas song. I really like your nativity scene on the mantle. The angel is wonderful. I am hitting the dining room today and maybe one more tree will be up. The mantel is calling but I don't think that will happen today. We just decided no letter this year. It will be better that way. Enjoyed your blog today, but I couldn't smell the pumpkin bread from here.

  12. Your home is beautiful. I think it's great to play faster music when you have a lot to accomplish. I have the rough draft of my letter. I need to get my hubby to spice it up - - - unless Far Guy wants to take on another one! Mine is going to be an end-of-the-year letter and go out the week after Christmas. There are too many other things going on now.

  15. I figured if Far Guy couldn't do it, he could leave it to Chance, who can do anything! Lovely pictures of your home and tree, Connie. You are pretty much accomplished at anything you do, including writing a great blog!
