Fear Not

Christmas just isn’t Christmas to me without a tree. For years I had a teeny table-top tree that my mother gave me, and each year she gives me more teeny ornaments for it. Last year she sent me a slightly larger version of that tree; since horizontal surfaces are scarce, I didn’t plan to put it (or the teeny one) up this year. But Husband persuaded me that we could put it on our dining table. I went one better and put it on the counter near an outlet so the lights can be on and little hands remain safe. So here is the Grandma Tree (it is actually tucked against the wine rack and against the wall):

So LKD, now things are all better. 🙂

    I can’t tell you how big I’m smiling right now.

    What a darling tree.

    I love the ornaments.

    I’m truly heartened to see your tree.

    It isn’t really Christmas without one.

    I’m a sucker for a Charlie Brown tree. I love the scrawny little misshapen ones no one else wants.

    Truly, I am smiling to see your tree.

    I was just over at facebook.

    Did you make the sweet potato bread?

    If so, honey, lay that recipe on me.

    I saw a recipe today for sweet potato cupcakes that caught my eye. The bread sounds yummy, too.

    It’s the pumpkin bread recipe, except I substituted 2 cups of pureed sweet potato for the pumpkin. Here you go: yum yum.
