And so this is Christmas....
Captain V. and his three Gifts on the 'look out' for the ultimate Christmas tree.
It's hot and sandy in my corner of the world, so searching out the perfect tree is a task best done is shorts and beach clogs, I kid you not!
The tradition each year is that the children take it in turns to choose 'THE' tree. 2010 was Gift #2's turn.
There is quite a science to the choosing of the tree and when it is found there is much excitement!
Cpt. V channeling his inner-aborist.
Our Christmas tree is most gently strapped onto the 4WD before finding its way home to be decorated by three clever kids.
This year is not our turn to have the children and they went to spend their holiday time with their Mum on the weekend. The tree which they glammed up before they left is a glittering reminder of their wonderful energy and there are lots of lovely gifts beneath it waiting to be shared in the New Year!
Do you have a 'live' tree in your home or are you like my Mum who digs out the box of beautifully preserved plastic branches each year?
PS There was meant to be a final photo of the decorated tree, but my camera is having a mini-feud with my laptop and I can't upload it....yet!
PPS This post is being re-gifted for Friday's Fun here, enjoy!
