Christmas Joy!!




Hello to all!! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was filled with much Chrismtas joy. My sister came up on Saturday and we went to the parade in Black Mountain. The kids get more candy there then on Halloween. They love it!!! There are no hot air ballons or real big floats at this parade, but we love it none the less. On Sunday we (my sister, brother-n-law, mom, 3 nephews, 1niece, husband) went to Avery county and got our Christmas tree. The farm was amazing. The kids could roll down the hill (I wish that I could have joined them), the adults could walk up and down many times (not as fun as rolling). The wonderful tree we got is the one behind us. I have to say it is glorious. I told Worth this morning that I love it. Not as much as him or in the same way, but I am totally in love with our tree. We ran into a slight problem when we were decorating though, we ran out of lights. This has never happened to me before. The top of the tree is not decorated. We bought lights just for the tree, but as we were putting that strand up they started blinking. Well I thought this is not so bad I can figure out how to make them stop blinking. We my friends when the box says "Shimmering lights" on it you can't make them stop blinking I asure you. So at lunch I will be out shopping for Christmas lights to finish my part way glorious tree. I am going to try to upload a picture of it now. It may come before the picture of Worth and me at the farm. I have not figured out how to put the pictures in the correct order yet. Well Good tidings to you and yours. I hope you have as much fun I as I do with this time of year.

PS- okay i can't figure out how to put the pictures like i want them, but i will get there. As you can see the top of the tree is not done. There are lots of pretty ornaments on the rest of the tree, but it is hard to tell. Enjoy!!!
