Weekend fun :-)

Friday night we decorated! We got a real tree again, but this year it took only minutes to put in the tree stand. Ha! Nothing like last year’s multi-hour horror story ;-) Our tree is once again, very, very colorful…lot’s of pinks and purples…very girlie…poor Tom. Having a Christmas tree makes everything seem so much cozier, love it!

We had a great Saturday in Lake Bluff for it’s holiday kick-off celebration. We went for a horse and buggy ride around the downtown, dropped in at the library and and made santa magnets, visited with Santa at the Lake Bluff museum, came back later that evening for some caroling and petted a couple of real reindeer and watched the lighting of the gazebo.

Horse and Carriage Ride cheese!
