THIS IS ONE OF THOSE POSTS THAT IS RANDOM, REALLY RANDOM!!!! STAY WITH ME!

IT IS BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS WITH LOTS OF MICKEY PACKAGES UNDER THE TREE AT OUR HOUSE!


THIS IS A TABLETOP TREE THAT I LITERALLY PUT TOGETHER IN THIRTY MINUTES YESTERDAY FOR ONE OF MY MOST SPECIAL FRIENDS THAT NEEDED A SPIRIT LIFT. I HOPE IT DID THE JOB!!!! I LIKED IT SO MUCH THAT I CAME HOME AND MADE ME ONE JUST LIKE IT.
Tomorrow we are leaving for the NORTH POLE via the POLAR EXPRESS.
We are driving to a city a few hours away, taking our little men and having a grandparent trip....we have lots planned for the next few days and its NO WORK and ALL FUN....lots of pictures to come.....Can you imagine that?

I will announce the winner of my favorite tree this weekend...I will even ask my number one ELF to help me choose. Stop by and say hello to her. She joined the blog world this week and I am so HAPPY. I have not had time to look at all of the trees.

Thanks for participating in the Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash. A special thanks to Jerri for hosting for me. It is not too late to enter your tree....You have until late Friday night to show your tree. I love looking at all the trees. I have been sneaking an hour here and there and looking at all the HOLIDAY HOME TOURS. I have seen absolutely stunning trees....and this is a gal that knows trees...
Though keeping up two blogs during the holidays has been a challenge, I have been so blessed to be able to PAY IT FORWARD to other bloggers and answer as many tree questions as possible. I hope I have answered all the emails..I really did try. Your compliments have been so sweet. I still have some funny tree stories to tell you in the next two weeks...I will continue to post on this blog until mid January and then plan to stay close to home on my main blog.
I am looking for a total makeover, so if you have suggestions, sites, or ideas, please send them to me at annah99@aol.com
If you know a new designer that would like to show off her look, send me her name. I love connecting people with people. I LOVE helping people PERIOD! I am one of those people that sees a new blog everyday that I want mine to look just like...that makes it a tad hard to decide what look I REALLY want.
In an upcoming blog I am going to share my favorite blogs. My blog life will be a year old in FEBRUARY and I plan to GIVE AWAY GIFTS all month.
The people I have met through blogging this year have enriched my life, looked at my grandkids probably much more than they wanted to, and given me a new hobby. (That could and maybe has become an addiction) Blogging has enabled me to document family moments; the good, the bad and the ugly, and YOU have read it. That still blows my mind. My goal for 2010 is to learn to make and post FANTASTIC pictures...If there a blogger out there that wants to tutor me (and I mean walk me through it as the older I get the harder I find reading instructions..Ha) I would be happy to pay you for your time. I know there are tutorials out there, but I need someone with skin to talk to. See what I mean about random.

I need to go and pack warm clothes for our trip to see Santa...so I will leave you with a few more tree pictures...Have a wonderful weekend and check back here on Friday or Saturday.
a very simple centerpiece....and very easy to make! a great look for the kitchen....a coffee table, an entry hall and you could easily add lights. This is one of my favorite simple looks....red berries and snow dipped trees.

That snowman tress is adorable. And don't you worry, I LOVE seeing your grandchildren! Your blog is wonderful. There is the best, easy tutorial on Clover Lane's blog that tells how to make your photos large on your blog. Clover Lane is listed on my blogroll list!

Hello. You are so very talented! You create the most amazing trees, I'm truly enchanted. Please help me. I have 2 trees that I decorate every year, an artificial tree in my living room and a live tree in my family room. The problem lies with the live tree. It is somewhat of a memory tree. I put all the ornaments on it that we've collected over the years, those of my children and so forth. Can you suggest what I can do to make it POP. Something that will make it look like some thought and planning went into it.

Thanks,
Deanna

Much as I love Mickey and all things Disney, I have to admit: that snowman tree is my favorite!
