I Bought a Christmas Tree

Out of this little boot will grow a 3 inch spruce tree that I planted this morning. I think I'll have a tough time finding ornaments for it though.

 

Is your tree up yet?

 

Here's the wreath that Amy's mom-in-law made from the leftovers from her too tall Christmas tree.

 

 

Today we shared the list of gifts maybe NOT to give this holiday. Here is the list:

1. An appliance

2. The partial gift -­ satellite radio without the subscription fee paid, no batteries.

3. The improving gift - Any gift that could possibly be construed as a criticism should be struck instantly from your list.  A diet cookbook (Amy will take yours!), workout DVD, cologne.

4. The gift of exercise ­ - gym memberships

5. A puppy

Amy's little Ike said his first word and it was "Dada" - love it! Amy thinks 'Dada' is easier for a babies to say first, but Craig thought it was 'Mama' - what do you think?

It's fun to hear Linus (from Peanuts) read the Christmas Story as part of the "Why do we call it Christmas..." contest - which got us talking about our childhood blankets and the unique ways our parents finally got us to give us the blanky. What's your blanket story?
