Time to Decorate!

As I mentioned yesterday, the cutie and I get each other an ornament for our Christmas tree as our anniversary pressies.  That is as far as we go when it comes to decorating for the holidays.  However, don't think we aren't all that festive in the Greene household, because we are.  We have the Sideshow Bob of trees and it happens to stay up all year round - the chili lights make it perfect for summer.

Something that was added to our tree in September was a pressie from my sister.  We both hate, seriously hate, birds.  A few years ago I bought her the Extraordinary Chickens calendar - not to be mean, but because we had it and thought it was [and still is] one of the best calendars around!  Well, she got her revenge this year.  She handed me my birthday pressie to open.  I took the lid off and there was a horrific looking black crow bird thing.  Scary!  The cutie found it so funny, he put it on top of our tree! 

I live with a Hitchcock The Birds moment happening above my head every day!

So disturbing.

The Holidays have begun :-)

I love the palm tree! I put mu (fake and pre-lighted) tree up after Thanksgiving. I love the season, and am already singing songs!

It's a fun tree and we laugh when we meet someone knew who asks if we really have a palm tree in our living room :-)

The crow, well, I love my sister and husband, but try my hardest to ignore its existence. Sometimes it works, and sometimes I just have to leave the room to get away from it.

Love the holidays!

Everyone loves the creepy crow, I should bring him down to the floor level, and let the who has adopted us have a go. Forget the balls of yarn, go for the crow!
