Tagging a Christmas tree now sounds like a fun idea!

Well, the map said a certain street was the second left, and it turned out to be the first right ... huh?! I found my way there and back home again, but I don't know if I'll find it again on Thursday!

I have two nice afghans here that my MIL no longer has space for. They're freshly laundered, but they're used and show a little wear. I don't have space for them either, but I hate to think of tossing them out. (That's sunshine, not a stain, on the green one.)

I also like to make trial runs when I have to drive somewhere that I'm not familiar with, good luck Thursday. And the afghans are beautiful!

I love that scene, Silent Night playing in the background, a beautiful tree lit up, and the snow falling. It is just perfect.

That's all part of the experience.
