Wordless Wednesday

Ok...I have to write some words today, but next Wednesday I promise all you'll get is my salutation.

First, I must give credit where credit is due...I did not come up with this idea on my own.  I follow a friend's blog and she had it there.  (Check it out).  I loved the idea and I've been waiting for an opportune moment to start it here.

Without further ado or any more words...I give you Wordless Wednesday.

Yours affectionately, 

Tuesday Topic - Christmas Trees

I'm going to be starting two new institutions (for lack of a better word) into my blog.  And because I love alliteration they are going to be called Tuesday Topic and Wordless Wednesday (but more on WW tomorrow.)  On Tuesdays I'll write about something that has been on my mind and ask a question...sometimes I'll write alot, sometimes it will just be a quick line and then a question for you.  Sometimes the topic will be frivolous (see below), but sometimes it will be serious.

I'd love for you to respond either here or on Facebook.  Let me know if you are having trouble commenting here...I'm thinking of changing over to WordPress...it is very easy to post comments there.

So...for this Tuesday Topic I want to talk about Christmas trees!!  Our tree has always been artificial, I know some people would only be happy with real, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  It is decorated all hodge-podge with decorations my siblings and I created when we were kids, I think one of my favorites is the angel I made whose body is a colored tissue.  There are also precious ornaments my family has collected over the years and all different colored glass ornaments.

Every year we decorate our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving.  There is usually ample complaining, but I think the whole family thinks it is worth it once the tree is up.

So here are my two questions for you...

Real tree or fake tree?

Do you have any tree trimming traditions?

Let me know!

Yours affectionately,

Video of the Week - Christmas

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is the music.  Of course I start listening to it whenever I want.  If you see me in the middle of June and it looks like I might be mouthing the lyrics to Baby It's Cold Outside or All I Want for Christmas is You...don't be surprised.  Just smile and nod.

So...it was really hard to pick my favorite Christmas song to put up here.  I picked one of my favorites from this year.


What is your favorite Christmas song this season?

Yours affectionately,
