Been busy cleaning around the house preparing to set up the indoor decorations this weekend.. We still haven't decided whether to go real or haul out the fake tree which has been gracing our living room the past 10 years. When the tree is lit up it's gorgeous to look at I must say though.. What are you going to be doing this year real or fake?

My shopping is always last minute..but will be more sale savvy this holiday..So you think I might see a red bow around a used Buick in the drive this Christmas....Or better yet a White Christmas in California .Darn I forgot to mail my first class letter to the North pole.... Ok Ok but I can dream can't I ? Have a happy & healthy holiday week spark friends...

    Rory, I'm using our fake tree, even though I prefer real. The real ones are just getting so expensive! emoticon
I hope your Christmas season is off to a great start and you have lots of joy! Lori

    We gave our big tree to the salvation Army. It is just my husband and I so we have a table top optic tree. I wanted our beautiful tree to go to a good home with some youngin that will enjoy it.It was a beautiful tree with the lights on it and it was 7 or 8 feet, it was bigger than me and i am 5 " 9'..Thanks for the cookie recipe, sounds like something I can do,do you know the calorie count? emoticon
