I'm participating in a blog carnival. That simply means someone had an idea to do something, and invited all the other bloggers to do it too, and link up. So in this case, the someone was Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee, the something is to share a photo of your Christmas tree, so I thought, Yes, I will! Tis the season.
So here is my tree, with my pups in front of it.
Okay, so it's mostly the pups. So here are a few more photos for your viewing pleasure.
Here is my nativity scene, which I love. Yes, the photo is date stamped 2008. Why take a new photo of it, when I had one in my file. But the tree photos above are from this year, really! The golden retriever was a puppy last year (just 3 months old) and is now a 72 pound one year old.
One of the EXCITING things that happens in my neighborhood at Christmas is that SANTA comes on the firetruck. And last night happened to be the night he came and I taped it just for YOU. It's very exciting with lots of fire trucks, and Santa on top waving. My kids love this memory. One June we heard a fire truck siren in the distance, and my then 4 yr old said, "I think I hear Santa!" They equate the the sirens with Santa, and that isn't a bad thing.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TIME!
