UPDATE: 3 more entries below at very last minute. Please visit each other and will then add new post on Thursday night. Thank you! Welcome back, Karen! :)
Rupert's back! This time with his lovely, sweet wife and knickerbockers wearing spunky son in tow. (Can you tell he loves his Dad, sporting a red jumper and all, much like Rupert's usual wear? Haha.)
This piece was in fact inspired by our very own first family outing to an actual Christmas tree farm to pick out a real Christmas tree! (I've had fake trees for so long due to the kids' asthma when younger but now being older it's time to start new traditions.) Anyway, whilst pretty cold, it was sooo much fun and even snowed. Yippee! Needless to say, I was like a little kid myself, running through the trees, and glowing with glee with, I think, real tears when spotting (ehem) my perfect Charlie Brown Xmas tree! Yes, must admit, I do love to have lots of room to hang the decorations!
OK, no doubt, I suspect many of you, especially Stateside, are not terribly keen to think about Xmas yet until at least Thanksgiving is done, but, what can I say? Well, it's very much xmas season in UK now (for better or worse), so I will simply blame it on my genes then! Nah, heh, really, I just love Christmas! Call me an old fashioned soft mush romantic or something, I know. And, with Alex loving it too, we are rather hopeless right now, finding, for example, new xmas songs and covers, and so on.
So, with all that said, I do hope a few more of you bear with me and sign up. We shall see. So far, I've got Linda's entry guessed right but what will the rest of you do who happen to chime in? :)
