I'm not as bad (or good depending on your viewpoint) as my friend Sue who puts up eleven trees (!) but I did have three this year - a garden tree, a kitchen tree, and a traditional tree. And a garland hung with travel ornaments. But this year the kitchen tree was my favorite. As I was hanging the ornaments I thought "this would be better if the ornaments were related" and so:
Milk, pancakes, toaster, and lots of caffeine.
Baked things and sweets:
cookies, cakes, ice cream.
Hamburgers and hot dogs, french fries, pizza and pretzels.
Cheese and wine.
And you have no doubt noticed cocktails sprinkled liberally all around the tree.
So my friend Cathy comes over and I show her (she also thinks this sort of thing is fun. If you don't, then why have you read so far? Go mess something up).
Cathy takes a tour around my tree, gets a big smile, and says "It's just like your day!"
I so love my friends. Thank you to everyone who made this the Best Christmas Ever.
