We have a tree!

It was a big, rewarding day:  I think the pictures tell the story.  And I believe this year's Christmas tree is the most beautiful we've ever had.

Besides this, I had a short horseback ride; Cliff got his wine bottled; his sister, Charlene, and her husband, Pat, came calling; and after that, our ex-daughter-in-law,  with Amber, our lovely, oldest granddaughter, showed up.  Some days are diamonds:  this was one.

You did have a 'diamond' day !  Your helpers looked like they had fun too !  Sometimes all that work is worth the effort !  'On Ya'  - ma

This will be the sixth year in a row that I haven't had a tree.  Seven years ago is when I began adopting all the animals in my peronal zoo.   A giant dog with a big, destructive tail and several mischievious cats have made traditional xmas decorations out of the question.  I loved your phrase "Some days are diamonds".  I need to remember that one since I too often just plow through the weeks and months without appreciating the great moments.  May the rest of your days be -- if not always diamonds -- a gem of some sort.  Topaz?  That's pretty good, right?

Aww! What a great photo story! I cracked up at the "too big" "too small" shots. LOL

I've said it before and I say it again, you are a very lucky girl.  The final picture is a 'pearl' of joy, by looking at everyone's smile.

What a lovely tree.  I can imagine the wonderful smell that fills your house from the tree.  Looks like everyone had a splendid time.
