Christmas in the Attic

Merry Christmas!!

I hope that all of you have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

This year found us with a house torn up and no way to decorate; or even a spot to place a tree!

Since Christmas has always been a big, special time for us we have always decorated in a huge way - all traditional of course. So this year we have both been bummed out a bit since we couldn't decorate. Basically, it has been hard to get into the spirit of things.

So, I spent all Thursday the 20th hunting down the decorations and setting up a small, 3' feather tree in the attic. I thought this would be a nice surprise for Annette. Actually, the hardest part was keeping the cats from helping me AND keeping it a secret until Christmas Eve!

Needless to say, Annette loved the tree.

I hope all of you have been able to celebrate the season in a special way and have remembered the reason for the season.

Your tree was so BEAUTIFUL !! a true treasure.

We can so relate to not beeing able to decorate at Christmas,it was like that in 2006 when I basically cried for not having my tabletop tree with old glass ornaments,antique tinsel,white candles etc.( We had moved )
My husband went out and bought a $5.00 tree on the 23rd and I had "my" tree.Not decked like always but it was a tree.

Your wife's christmas surprise tree was a fantastik idea.Memories she will never ever forget.
Thank you for sharing,

Thanks Brigitte!

The hardest part was keeping the secret.

It turned out to be one of our more memorable Christmases.

Do you have pics of your house?
