Don't forget to hang up yr sock!

Since i was ill last week, i ended up staying in all weekend.
So what did i do? Put up a 'HOLIDAY TREE'.
heh heh heh. Who am i kidding....
I got a friggin' Christmas Tree!!!!
HOORAY!!!!




I love Christmas. It is so much fun. Every year, my mom and I buy each other ornaments, and swap pictures of our trees. This year, Josh took a slew of my Nativity Scene, which i inherited from my grammy. What's funny about the Nativity Scene, is that for years I remembered it as a glorious piece of Grammy History (which it was, don't get me wrong), but i laughed histerically as i unwrapped the pieces i haven't seen since before she died in 1998. The 'upgraded' Mary, Joseph and Jesus are all bigger than the rest of the figures. When i told my mom this, she said my grammy always believed that those were the most important figures, so they had to be bigger than the others. I laughed pretty hard, but then Josh agreed, and said it was the same in most renaissance paintings. Okay. I'll go along with that. But what about the fact that when you turn the 'upgrades' over, you see a black crayon mark that says $.59 on each figure! I laughed even harding thinking that my grammy got her 'upgraded' nativity figurines at the thrift store. If you knew her, you would know this is just like her.




All in all, it was a nice weekend, but i am ready to get schnookered on Wednesday for my 28th b-day. i'm going a little stir crazy in my house!

That's a nice non-specific, non-denominational, totally ambiguous, equal opportunity, open to interpretation Winter tree. Remember when Christmas used to be easy?

Aaron said...

Damn Cas. You're getting old.
