I know I have taken pictures of this tree in the past but it never came out as well as the one taken on The Galleria Mall's facebook page. It's the country's tallest indoor Christmas Tree and Wayne and I go every Black Friday to watch the ice skating show. This year we were in San Antonio on Black Friday but we did go to one of the shows on a Saturday in December. We go to this mall throughout the year as well. I thought this picture was impressive so I thought I would share. If you notice the 4 floors crowded with people? Yes, it's this crowded every year for the show. We usually get there a couple of hours early to grab a spot or you miss out!

Go ahead and add me to the list of ill people! Lol! When I was sick for over a week with that cold, it seem to get better but I woke up New Years Eve morning and my ribs were hurting but instead of gradually getting better they hurt more everyday! Yipee! It hurts to breath, cough and sneeze. I can't even sleep on the side that hurts.

I will be okay though! I still have all my Christmas decorations up and watching Christmas shows so that will heal me! Right???

I hope all of you who are feeling sick, get well soon!!! Xmastidings wife too!

Good afternoon! How is everyone? I am well. Must got done eating lunch and a short lunch this am.

For anyone who is not feeling well...hope you better soon!

So glad it's the weekend! I thought I would be relaxing tonight, but it sounds like we're going out to dinner with DH's parents now. Oh well. I guess I will relax later on, if I make it that late!

What is everyone's plans for the weekend? We're going out to dinner with a couple that is our best friends tomorrow, then Sunday, we will be taking the Christmas decorations down.

Hope you all continue to have a great day! I will check back! Talk you all later!

Good afternoon, everyone. Looks like there are a lot of people not feeling well today; I hope you all feel better soon.

We spent most of the morning taking down Christmas decorations in the office, and now we are sitting around just feeling 'blah'. I hope 3:00 gets here soon.

I sometimes feel that the true meaning of Christmas has long been forgotten, repalced with just the necessity of buying and receiving gifts, and in some cases, thinking of only themselves.... I do realize that time is marching on into the month of January, and it does cost additional money to leave the lights on longer (I truely understand and expect a utility bill of 600.00 in the mail). But I myself, want to hold onto Christmas for as long as I can and if I can express my love for something in such a manner, then I ask this; "Is it worth it?" To me, it is.....
Well said xmas i think the same mine is still up well most of them my tree is still lit , i have heard in the shop so much this week and last so glad its over
And yes it will always be worth it to me to
