Christmas Tree Day happened this weekend! I had two strapping young men about the house (Ad’s brother was visiting) so I put them to work.
But I helped too!
Ad bought a new tree stand (our cheapo goodwill one from last year bit the dust) and put the tree up while I was out this morning. Nice, right? I wrestled with the lights and decorated it this afternoon. At the farm where we cut our tree, they were selling bundles of pine boughs for $3 each. I’ve got arrangements in almost every room of the house now, and it smells so wonderful.
On a completely different note, how cute are these prairie dogs? We went to the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, which is free (woohoo!), and was pretty much deserted since it’s winter (double woohoo!).
And the opposite of cute…
That one in the back just makes me laugh! He looks deeply unimpressed with life.
