We put the travel tree up first, a couple of days ago. It's smaller, less of a job. We have to pace ourselves.Music: Salzburg and Memphis
East and west coasts: Massachusetts and the San Juan Islands
Salzburg, Philadelphia, and the Earth.
Maine and Paris
Colorado and Norway
And so much more.
It took us a few days to put up our big tree. First, we had to find some matching light strings to fill in where the lights on our pre-lit tree were unlit.
But first we had to go to some parties. We joined other retired teachers for Holiday brunch on Friday morning. Becky puts on a beautiful event, with wonderful food.
Then Saturday we had a Holiday lunch with our garden group with lots of good potluck food and visiting. On the way home we picked up the lights we needed and then got busy, for a little while.
Today, Sunday, we loaded the tree up with memories.
A tribute to cookie baking.
Lots of collected Santas.
Lots of fruits and vegetables and horses and pigs. I collected the former, our kids years ago collected the latter.
All kinds of birds.
The good and the bad: Santa Lucia, Krampus, and BACON!
Peacocks for Irene
I think the decorating is done.
There will be more pics. Now we will fucus on a Christmas letter, and then baking!
