The Christmas chaos~I see the light!

Happy Friday!

{{It's come to my attention that I'm not able to comment on any blogs today that have comments in the 'imbedded' way. Only if they have a pop-up window. Go figure! WTH!}}

I know I might be bragging, but I finally have our trees finished.
I actually thought about leaving the ornaments off the big tree this year and leaving it semi-naked with only lights and ribbon. But then I worried it might be self-conscious.
I hope you're catching my drift; I'm a caring person.

{The big tree that was purchased UN-lit and is now LIT!}

{The little tree that hasn't had a lighting issue, but has an elf climbing in...}

You know what are my favorite ornaments? 
My girls.
If only I could set them IN my tree for the entire Christmas season.....surely, they'd have something to say about that, but whatevs. I cooked them in my Lady kitchen and you'd think I ask a lot from them.

FYI, my old tree found a new home with one of Lolo's previous Law enforcement co-workers. Yay-it's being protected once again. :)

Speaking of my favorite ornaments. Linds is flying up to VA to spend a few days with her Sister, then they are driving down together with Lolo's Mattis (the XL husky) for her Christmas break. I'm so excited. I've not put my hands on my Lolo since August. Well, you know what I hugs, no kisses, etc....

In other news, I've given birth to released 25 monarchs this week. Merry Christmas mother nature!

We have our big party tomorrow night for our employees; 100 people have RSVP'd!
I'd better locate my party pants. It's always a fun night for everyone involved.
Well, maybe not for the bartender or chefs, but you know what I mean.

That will be our weekend. How about you? Any parties in your future? 

Wishing you all a good weekend doing whatever you're doing. I've still only watched 3 Hallmark movies this season., please don't tell the powers that be at Hallmark or they might send the Sappy Hallmark PoPo to my house.

The butterfly and the trees - all so pretty. Love the ornaments that the kids made or the ones that have their photo on them. So sweet. I am sure it will be great to have your girls home! Since August - that is hard.

We have yet to get our fresh tree. I think this weekend will have less b-ball games, but not by much. We have two games tonight (Reg then Mini). I wonder if we could score a tree between games tomorrow. I got all doped up for a procedure today on my hand and it didn't end up happening, so today (my day off) is kind of a waste. Unless I count a solid nap from the drugs as a good thing - might feel great, but oh how I need to get things done! Like address envelopes, decorate, make a dinner that isn't leftovers. We do not have any parties to attend - unless you count the sporting events the kids are in. That is about as social as we get.

Wait, so can you not comment on my blog? Are my comments embedded? I am not a techie, and even real blogger lingo confuses me.

Ernie, Yes. I left you a long and I think, a funny comment this morning. Right now I can't even leave a comment of my blog at the 'ebedded' comments because it doesn't recognize me as a google user. I have no idea has something to do with cookies. I don't even EAT cookies for heaven's sake!

Nice work on the butterflies! I have 3 trees up, but the cat's favorite might have to come many times can I pick it back up? lol

Christine said...

Your trees are beautiful! Have a wonderful weekend! It is getting busy around here, but fun.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Your trees look great! Love the elf bum!

Billie Jo said...

Oh, those trees!!!!!!!
Have a great weekend! Wrapping here.

Ernie said...

I always enjoy your comments, so hoping my blog does not shut you out!

George said...

Your Christmas trees are beautiful! I'm gad you found a home for the old tree. You've done a magnificent job with the butterflies. I'm also happy to hear that you will have both girls home for Christmas.

This is very frustrating about the commenting part....I'm going round and round in circles trying to figure it all out. Also, now my blog has the reCaptcha thing on it even though I have it set to NO for comment verification. :(

We are still decorating the tree. We work on it a box of ornaments at a time. It's hardly half done at this point but looking better every day. Kudos to the Monarch lady. Hope no one falls into the pool at the parties this year.

Re: the comments; are you finding it to be a problem on blogger or wordpress? Or just a random mixture? Not that I know the answer, just curious.

Gigi said...

Also, FYI, I'm not seeing a Captcha thing when I comment here.

I'm not any good at throwing big parties anymore but I am great at attending them. Your tree looks great. I gave my children most of the family ornaments when they were setting up houses. Kind of wish I hadn't done that. Makes me miss my old Christmas trees.

Your trees are beautiful! And congrats on birthing so many butterflies! The earth thanks you!! :)

Mellie said...

Very pretty trees! Hope your party went well. We are invited to a party this weekend, but it is on my daughter's birthday. Not sure if we'll be able to make it!

I love seeing your pretty trees. That's a gorgeous butterfly photo.
