baby it's COLD outside

My face is STILL stinging a little from yesterday's Packer Game. It may be a bit frostbitten. We brought our friends K & B to Lambeau--their "virgin" tour to see the NFL LIVE in Green Bay--and the football gods smiled on our team (34-16-whoo-hoo!). Great game, a fun day, a heckuva touchdown by Donald Driver breaking (by our count) SIX tackles. But sitting in freezing weather for six hours (including tailgating--beer and brats, of course) wipes a gal out. I was wearing two winter jackets atop three layers and felt thankful for the miracle of thermal underwear and hand warmers.

We put up our tree Friday night. This is our tree Saturday morning. We put it up again Saturday afternoon. It fell over again Saturday evening. We are now equipped to answer the age-old question: "If a Christmas tree falls over in your living room, can the neighbors hear you scream?"

And finally, we have a WINNER! Hanneke, over at Northwoods Adventures won November's FABULOUS--her choice from Anne Marie's NaDa Farm Shop. Congratulations, Hanneke!

I'm off to put more moisturizer on my face now...

    Bummer about the tree, have you tried fishing line? That's what we used to do.

  6. Well, all the decorations are on one side!

    Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream for face. I mix it with my moisturiser, it is THE best.

  7. Hand to God we've been known to tie the tree to the cold air return vent with dental floss. Don't laugh until you've tried it!

  8. That's crazy. Are you sure the puppy doesn't have something to do with that?

  9. I'm cold just thinking about your Sunday. Glad you had a great time!

    As for the tree? Umm ... maybe it's the puppy? We put crappy fencing around our tree when my childhood dog was a pup. I think that was just because the tree wouldn't fit in the playpen.

  11. Oh...I hope your ornaments survived. We are hoping ours survive with our boys. They love the tree this year and are trying to touch all the ornaments.

  14. Oh, yes, the Packers were looking good Sunday!

    The tree - we had one like that. It had an S curve in the trunk that none of us noticed when we picked it out. Ultimately, we supported the tree stand with the weight of a cinder block. Seriously.

  15. Oh no! Tie that tree up! (Have you thawed out yet? :) )

  16. LOL @ the poor tree. I thought at first you were going to say a pet did it. I wouldn't be surprised with our cat. I hope you can get it to stay up somehow.

  17. Argh! I guess, judging from the comments, that fishing line will be your friend.

  18. 5 layers of clothes is my idea of a nightmare. On the other hand...Mmmm... Clay Matthews!

    Poor puppy, everyone thinks he knocked over the the tree. We always put ours in a window and tied it with fishing line to the window locks

  19. Ah, the age old question...

    It's only funny if it happens to someone else, isn't it? If it helps, my tree is lying on its side too--still in the bag on our family room floor.

  20. HA... I was attacked by a Christmas tree while sitting on the floor at my in-laws house almost 37 years ago. It was hilarious!
