Very nice Stacy! A friend of mine stopped putting her deer out, every morning when they got up, someone had taken one of the deer and put it on top of the other. It was too funny, but they would come back night after night and do it again.

Now that is funny! ......something I would have done to my neighbor as a kid as I used to be such a prankster.

Our friends, who are not into the commercialism of Christmas told us a couple of weeks ago that they "kidnapped" their neighbours' plastic light up Santa (the old hard plastic kind, not the new blow-up ones), duct taped it's mouth and around the "feet" and put it up on their own roof. They sent a "ransom note" asking for Christmas baking and came home to a note from the daughter saying she wanted her Santa back, with a box of goodies. They returned it the next day and after found a "restraining order" saying they were not allowed within 10 feet of any Christmas decorations not on their own property!

I just thought this was absolutely hilarious! But I think the deer stunt is even more so!!!

Everyone's trees look very festive and beautiful. My parents and I just decorated our tree yesterday. It has a crooked trunk so it was quite entertaining to get it to stand up straight in the stand. I guess that is what you get when your tree is cut not even 20 miles from your house and was not grown on tree farm. I have attached a picture of the tree and some decorations. The angel my mom made at least 10 years ago.

Sierra, that looks like all the trees that my father brought home when I was a child! We loved them all - the scent of evergreen is spectacular!

This tree is a red fir also known as a silvertip. When I trimmed a few branches off the tree the scent was just incredible. Although, I have worked in the forest for 20 years the scent of freshly cut trees is still one of my favorite smells. It is a pleasure to follow a van full of wood chips down the road after thinning of small trees has occurred.
