Vacation Time is Here

And my wish is that the kids – who I usually have to drag out of bed, kicking and screaming, will actually sleep in.


In other news, the Webmaster – the son and grandson of Christmas tree farm owners – let me buy an artificial tree yesterday.

Here it is:

The Webmaster commented, “You know, the irony is that this was supposed to be the only REAL tree in the lot!”

This is from an official, licensed Peanuts tree kit.  It comes with red ornament ball and blanket.  Apparently, someone at church received one as a white elephant gift and it was set up in the kids’ Sunday school room.  When Tad saw it, he was smitten.  So, I bought him one.  He can recite most of the show verbatim now, including Linus’ recital of Luke, chapter 2.

I think it’s adorable – both the tree and the boy.

    Little Cowgirl’s preschool has one of those trees as a part of their Christmas decor. She loves “the Charlie Brown tree,” as she calls it.

    Now that our kids are out of school, we need to skype more frequently.

    Blessings from a Christmas tree farmer on your Charlie Brown tree.
