Xmas Preparedness Pictorial View

This was the best of about 40 that Doug took of the 3 of us...
Finding the perfect spot to start searching for the perfect tree!
I think they found it! Aubrey gave it a hug and a kiss.
Aubrey is helping Daddy chop it down
And now to the house decorations...

Craigafeller Center is complete!
The mantle
The outside... lights, blow up glbe, Christmas Light Up Frog... we got it all.

So the house is done, including the lights. The tree is up - it is not decorated yet but will be in the next week. It is a PERFECT tree, it is beautiful!! Did I mention perfect? Doug even got the lights up - and while on the roof, cleaned the gutters. So a very busy day. But a very fun day!


Doug and I were whining that we had JUST gotten the house in semi-decent shape and now it is totally out of whack again to make way for the train table, the tree, etc. Kinda funny!

I think you need to inform people that the only people who see the outside of your house are your ONE set of neighbors or those who drive ALL the way up that hill of a driveway you have (unless someone else built there since I was there last)!!

You GO Craigs!!! You all are high energy - you make me tired. Lydia does have a point, but you never know Lydia, she might have a full house for x-mas too!

I love the picture of the wagon being pulled through the field of trees.

The tree IS perfect. And I love Craigafeller Center.

I'm tired looking at all that...but it does look nice. Although I don't see the Christmas Frog. Is there such a thing?

Great recent posts. Just so you new I have been following your blogs posts around the world. Your content is great and I am so happy that you removed the pink background. Due to the Holiday I have not checked your blog entries. I love the comment regarding the blog was becoming too femine. I wonder who said that. Nice post the other day with the male blog post :) Keep up the great blogging.

The tree hunting looks like it was so much fun! The train is spectaculer, and the Christmas ball is AWESOME. Where's the frog?

and who is scott? Someone's got a fan...

found the frog...I had to make the picture bigger. Still confused about it though :-)

Scott is a very good friend of ours! He was in our wedding and went to college with Doug. They have 2 kids too :)

The Christmas Frog is the green frog with lights and a Santa hat on... not nearly as big as the 8 foot blow up Globe :)
