Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree


Colorado has piles of snow 
in the mountains.



Snowy Slope
Breckenridge


But on the high plains, 
not so much.

Aurora



Inside it's looking 
a little more like Christmas:


Christmas Tree, 2014















This year it's all about silver and green,
Frostie Friends and penguins ~ 
Yes!  I know the Arctic doesn't have penguins,
but they're so darn cute,
I can't resist!









If you celebrate Christmas or the season,
have you gotten your tree up?

Does decorating a tree excite you,
or do you groan at the thought of it?

Do you decorate the same way every year,
or do you like to change it up?

Here's a toe tapping Glee performance
to get you rockin' around your Christmas tree!

If that doesn't do the trick
and you need a lift,
go check out Linda's Peaceful Place,
the heartwarming and uplifting blog
of a Montreal blogging buddy of mine ~
who shared these Christmas Tree lessons.






I'm wishing you Happy Holidays
during this special time of year!

  3. I agree that your tree is gorgeous! What a fun post, and I am glad to see you are enjoying Princess Sassy Pants' images as much as I! It is a blizzard here in Montreal today, we are getting a lot of snow and blustery winds. :)

  4. Such a beautiful tree just right and gorgeous. This year for the first time I did all my decorating before thanksgiving since I was having company and then was going away the first week of December. I was so glad I did as now I am enjoying December instead of do feeling overwhelmed. I just might make it a tradition.

    1. Thanks, Peggy! I think it's great that you got an early start and don't feel overwhelmed. I was slammed in mid-November, but things are better now. I'm definitely starting earlier every year. Now if Terry and I could just shake these pesky colds! Take care!

    1. Hi Adam! I hope that you are feeling 100%! I buy my ornaments in July ~ The Frostie Friends always run out. I have almost every ornament in the series. It drives me nuts that I don't have them all, especially the first one. Oh well, I get over it every year. Have a good one!

    1. Hey Pat! I'm glad that you didn't get buried in snow! I know how much you love it!!! We may get a good snowstorm this weekend ~ the Pineapple Express is on its way. Lots of moist tropical air mixed with cold temperatures could set up for a big dump. Have a great day!

    1. Thanks, Jim! I love a Christmas tree! I like to put on my Christmas CDs, open a bottle of Evan Williams eggnog, unpack the boxes of decorations, and go down Memory Lane with Terry as we decorate the tree. My dad loved decorating the tree too ~ It was a work of art for him. We got to watch as he created it. But sometimes it was me who went and chopped down the tree and brought it home. Now I'm quite happy to have my artificial tree, especially here in dry Colorado. Have a happy day!

    1. Hey Ron! My toes are tapping right now, because I'm listening to the Glee video again and again as I write my replies! I can't imagine a world without music! Smiles right back at you! Take care!

  9. I'm a little tilted, but I do try to sparkle. No decorating for us this year - we're going away for Christmas. I like your tree, though.

  11. The tree is beautiful. What is that long ornament that appears to be glass? My tree is up. I don't groan over decorating it, but if I don't get around to it, then it's not the end of the world. I'm bizzy bizzy bizzy.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Thanks, JJ! Bizzy, bizzy says it all! The long glass ornaments are icicles. I have clear glass ones and snowy, glittery plastic ones for my Arctic tree. I don't do a lot of decorating, but I did get a wreath outside and string some lights on it. My neighbors must be shocked ~ LOL! Have a great day, and may the bizzyness slow down a little!

    2. I thought it might be an icicle. Thanks.
