Despite telling myself I don't really "do" Christmas (apart from what's necessary as far as my little boy's concerned) I did actually go out and buy a tree today. It's the biggest one we've ever had - I had to saw a bit off the bottom to get it to stand up straight (mind you, we do have low ceilings Wink). No baubles yet - that would be expecting FAR too much Twisted Evil. Especially as he's just come home from school with the news that he needs a World War II costume for the school Christmas party tomorrow, and could I quickly make him one. Funnily enough, I'm right out of pith helmets. Mind you, those oranges have given me an idea...

Happy Christmas everyone Very Happy.

Angel's Avatar I just love Christmas!! You sound like my hubby-he would have given it a miss this year...

Bet your tree looks lovely.

As for your son...get him dressed in dark trousers and shirt and maybe a tanktop or something handknitted. I wish you were closer. My 8 year old did something for WW2 in the summer and he has a balaclava!!-Would be perfect!

warmest wishes

Westerwitch's Avatar Arrrrrrggghhhhhhh I used to hate getting news like that from my kids. I loathed making costumes - good luck and don't forget to show us a picture of your tree when you have decorated it.

Frances's Avatar Your picture is reminding me of Christmas back in Virginia. My mom would always have me help her fill up a big brass bowl (I got to do the polishing!) with oranges, apples and lots of pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and brazil nuts. I loved all the colors and shapes. Oh yes, we would also tuck in some holly, freshly cut from one of the trees in the back yard. xo
