Christmas Tree

Hi all,

I was lucky enough this year to be part of a three-way Christmas Tree swap. Mandy scored the 9' tree, I got Mandy's 8' tree and Penny got my 6' tree. 
Looks better in real life.
As you can see I love silver and blue --- my life has been a long list of silver and blue events --- 21st birthday, engagement party, wedding ... and so it carries over to my tree.

I have spent probably 12 or so years collecting the baubles and whatnot for my Christmas tree. I have bought a Swarovski crystal snowflake ornament for every year that hubby and I have been married, and I have added a few more crystal ornaments as well.

I am not a fan of tinsel for my tree, though. I just have never been able to make it look nice so I do not bother any more and I have to admit the simple look works for me.

I normally do not wrap presents until basically Christmas Eve but Miss J has been badgering me so we are all up to date with purchasing and wrapping.

The weather this year has been really nice so far (knock on wood) and Christmas Day is predicted to be only 30C ... YAY!!! I hate eating a fully cooked roast when it is 40C+. One day... one day I will experience a cold Christmas.

Have a good one. Cheers,
