Shopping, shopping and more shopping.

Hi everybody, are you all still doing as much shopping as me, I am nearly done all thats left now is to make sure we have all the food then I can relax and start to enjoy myself.
Tony and I always go to a farm to choose our tree, my husband is very choosy and we have to find the perfect tree so we slog around several fields before he is satisfied that we have the perfect tree and then we take it to the barn to be netted, and we bring it home we usually struggle to get it through the door but manage it, we sometimes have to trim a bit from the top to stop it touching the ceiling and then my favourite bit getting out the decorations and bringing our tree to life making it a tree of memories, this is when I usually feel that christmas is really nearly here Magic!

Tony sounds like me....I walk and walk and walk. I have to check out every tree in every field to be sure I get the "right" one! We got an awesome tree this year. Post a picture when yours is up and decorated. I would love to see it!

Oh and I haven't even started my shopping. Hubby and I are going tomorrow after work and daughter and I are going Sunday.

I've only bought one thing so far. Ugh!!

btw - your pkg. came today. Thank you so very much. I definitely had the wrong address. I used the one that was on the back of the teabag you had sent to me awhile back. I'll get another pkg. in the mail after the Christmas rush. Hugs..

Very important to have exactly the right shaped tree.

Hi!
I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog. You asked me about my buckeyes (peanut butter balls).
A stick of butter = 1/2 cup, 1/2 lb., 4 oz.
(I just read it off the package.)
And they are called "buckeyes" because they look just like the nut that falls off trees in the Northern U.S. Have you ever heard of the college team, the Ohio State Buckeyes? It's their mascot. Crazy, I know.
Well, hope that helps.
Blessings,
Traci

This is why we don't have a live tree ... we'd still be there Jan. 1 ... I never could find what I liked

Merry Christmas, TTFN ~ Marydon
