Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.

Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didnīt cut the trunk....the tree...
I used to all the time - now everyone is scattered so there is no point. Used to love coloring them - even did it the natural way with onion skins, coffee and beets one year. They turned out so pretty!
of course....we need chocolates and jelly eggs, rabbits and stuff....all is needed for the perfect easter nest.........and a little present...in our family we always gave little presents at Easter for the children....for around 5-15 Euros....and the chocolate and candy stufrf
Oh yes, we go through the trauma of coloring eggs every year. My daughter used to cry over the cracked ones, or drop at least one on the floor and I freak out afraid my floor will be stained purple for ever and ever. But they are pretty to look at, and I make a mean egg salad the week after Easter.
I always buy a few candies and goodies to put in the basket too, and a small gift. The teenage boys usually get money, and my daughter a movie or stuffed animal (anyone else have kids into Webkinz?) or something like that.
There are no small children in my family for the moment so no easter egg hunts. I do plan to put and "easter tree" in my window this year. I haven't done one in years so it will be fun. We use a branch from a curly hazel tree and decorate it with easter eggs, chicks, ribbons and things
It is in giving that you receive the greatest gift !
We always colored eggs when we were younger, then my nieces, son, and myself used to every year. This year my son who now 16 years old already said he is not going to do this year. (big brat) But I still have my nieces.
Louanne always in our hearts
I still color eggs even though my kids are grown with families of their own. Sometimes my grandchildren are here to help me but many times I'm here by myself doing it. We like to eat hard boiled eggs so why not color them and make them pretty.
