Christmas Memory II

I declared that I would write 5 whole Christmas memories, and of course, I suddenly can't remember details of any Christmas in my entire life. I think I've been hypnotized.

Well, I'll stew on it for awhile, and in the interim, put these photos up, again. I think I've posted them every year...because it's funny every time. And there might be one new reader out there that didn't ever see this, and I wouldn't want him or her to miss out on this funny memory.

Here's my Christmas tree, c. 2005

And here it is after I left the house and Brian & Co. played a practical joke on me:

The entire story is here, if you haven't read it, or would like to read about it again.


  1. Thats great. I'm going to try and do that with the Rockefeller center Tree. LOL

    Well,hopefully it wouldn't take me 1/2 an hour to notice THAT one had been replaced!

  3. LOL I love that!

    Christmas Memory #2: Living in Texas (quite a weather change from upstate NY), we had a big backyard but some pretty wussy trees. One year, Crow and I came down to find Santa had left a mock-up of a castle to put in the backyard, instead of a tree house. The note said my dad would find the supplies in the garage. Sure enough, he did! He, Crow and I built that thing one Saturday. It did duty as a castle, a two-story apartment building, a girls' club, a boys' club, a pirate get the idea. Sometimes, I would take a book and go out there and read and watch the sky go by. It was a perfect place for us.

  7. I totally remember this happening. Ha!
