Oh Christmas Tree ...


It's stinkin' hot so I can't really say it feels like Christmas but yesterday we cranked our
air conditioner, decorated the tree, and the house, and well ... it's lookin' like Christmas now !



Here's the boxes of decorations ... all ready to be opened, like presents, one by one ... by me !
And then given to each of the children to be hung on the tree !



And they love it !
As much as I do ... maybe.



Every evening now, our house will be dimly lit by candle and fairy lights.




I love the ambiance.




And the stillness.
The (relative) quiet ...




And the reflection.
Of years gone by ... and years to come.




The memories.




Oh ... the memories.




Candles.
I love candles !
This one is Pumkin Pie ...



Our tree ... 2009 !

Everything looks so pretty! We just finished getting all our things up too. You're right about the memories.

I bet that took some time getting used to celebrating Christmas in the warm weather.

Beautiful holiday home!

You know, I lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for two Christmases, and although it was hot, it wasn't the same as you. I've never lived where it's actually summer at Christmastime. It's really hard to imagine, because I know that when it's not really cold it's hard for me, so to be summer would be indescribable.

I love your tree and decorations. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
