Okay, a challenge is a challenge. Back on November 26th, my sister, Janet saw my tree in our entryway that I posted and raised me two trees in her comment. Now, how can you let a sibling rivalry pass unchallenged. Actually, Janet knows that when I put up all my Christmas decorations, I have more than one tree. I have to say though if you get up close to some, they are in really bad shape. I watched a decorating show once that said never throw away an artificial Christmas tree, if you use enough ornaments and sparkle you can make anything look good. I have taken that advice as well as confiscating a tree or two from the trash, I am not above this, just ask my small group.
So heres to some fun sibliing rivialry and I raise Janet some garland. There is the tree in the entryway posted earlier, we have a tree that has the family ornaments, the one in the dinning room with the red is a super old tree I remember buying at Wal-mart for $19.99, when the kids were really little. The tree I saved from the trash at Grandma Bergie's has all snowmen on it and we put it in the basement so that I can have Christmas in my workroom. This last one, is one of two trees I found years ago on an excursion to Nell Hill's. This one is Anna's tree and it is lime green foil with pink. Lindsey has her tree at school right now and it is a pink foil tree with orange ornaments.
This will be the first Christmas that my sisters and I are having the holiday in one of our homes. Becuase we all have lived so far away from each other, when we have been able to do the holiday together we have always gone to Dad and Mom's in Minnesota. This year we will be at both my house and Janet's. Wooow Hooo!!
