Christmas!!!

I S.W.O.R.E. I was going to go to bed early tonight because despite 12 hours sleep last night and a two hour nap this morning, I am still tired.

Still.

Then the architect sent his latest feeble effort.

*sigh*

I was also going to post a photo of the tree we've managed to decorate...but I am not sure I can get that together at this moment.

Aw,  what the heck....



The lights have stopped flashing, for which I am grateful....and the kid's pesebre (?) nativity scene, a tradition we have picked-up here is now complete.  Made with polly pockets and stuff we had on hand...

Photos later.

Cheers, and sleep well,

O

Tomorrow is another day - yikes!

Pretty tree! Hope you catch up on your sleep. Maybe it's all that time on the train?

nice. You know, in France, it's not unheard of to decorate the tree as soon as Advent starts. And then, for the nativity scene, you add new people to it every Advent Sunday, with Jesus coming only on Christmas, and the three kings on Jan 6 :)

Word Verification today: 'cupli' I think that is the plural of Cupid??

When in Rome...only two weeks to Christmas, we are all stringing up the lights and baking the shortbread. I do envy your ability to sleep. Despite my best efforts I can only squeeze out 5 or 6 hours. I'm a mess.

very nice tree - although disturbingly symmetrical - dont they sell fake charlie brown trees?

Beth, sometimes the fact that tomorrow is another day is just a little bit scary, no?

JG, indeed!

ElP, we have totally overachieved! They are all in place already! Such stupid Canucks!

Lynda! The only good thing about the word verification (well, aside from that pesky spam issue I was getting) is the funny words it comes up with! I'll post a photo tomorrow when I am assured it is done.

Bodhi, you are so SCARING ME! TWO WEEKS! OMG

Aska, it is sort of freaky symetrical, but we're fairly cool with that anyway....short and sweet. If we ever move into the house we'll have to get another one, bigger, then if we bring over the tree from the boat (which is about 4 feet tall) we can have a papa tree, a mama tree and a little tiny baby tree, and it will be just right!
