Hi Good i was kidding as well.

Holidays are on the threshold. Does anybody have the tradition of buying the Christmas tree home? Well we do. I will get a Santa as well this year. We have party at our grandma's.

I just bought a new artificial, went through tree hell too many years in a row there, so it is the 6ft charlie brown tree from the cardboard box for now, until I forget the headaches anyway. My sister gave me this beautiful fake tree, it has snow on the ends and is very full, well all that crap they spray on the ends gets all over the house and through the air. It looks nice but is very messy, I am going with the same kind I had prior to that.

That should be fun getting Santa to come to grandma's, I bet she will just love having everyone around, you are awesome.

I started a few years ago being a secret santa, I keep my ears open all year for a family or an individual that may be having a hard time, I usually stay with things that will be beneficial past christmas, like clothing or a coat and gloves, if it is a child, I will through a toy in there too. I don't put who it was from, just finding a way to get it to them without them knowing is sometimes a challenge. I had my daughter take it and not let them know who it is.

Another thing I do is prepare plates for the two older disabled gentlemen in town and take it to them on thanksgiving and on christmas. I pack up a bag of christmas cookies to go along with the meal, they really enjoy it and I feel good doing it. Besides you always have left over turkey right? I have done this for years.

dadummy, you have great ideas that make the season warm and cheery, you are right about the turkey, so it isn't costing you much more, what a nice thing to do. These guys probably look forward to your knock on the door every year. Happy holidays to you, you sound like a wonderful person.

Oh yes they do look forward to the meals, I think it is the only full course meal they get all year long. In fact the one will call me, he gets really excited about it, he will often tell me what to put extra on his plate, so I throw it in. My husband laughs about it when he calls. These guys live alone, they cook some of their meals on a kerosene heater in the winter, they have a stove but I don't think they use it much. I just figure I have the extra cooked, why not make someone else feel a little better.
I have not figured out who to secret santa this year though, had a young lady in mind until I found out that she is doing alot of underminding things, and is not as needy as I first thought. I want to help someone that really needs it. I have some time yet, so I am sure someone will come about. There is a local homeless shelter, I could talk to the caseworkers there and see if they have anyone with a genuine need. someone will come to mind soon, hopefully. I really enjoy doing this.

When does everyone start decorating? When do you put up your tree? Do you do the outside of your house as well as the inside of your house? I start right after thanksgiving, pulling out the boxes that I have acquired over the years. I have a six foot santa that is operated by an eye that senses you being there and starts talking, he looks so real. My grandchildren love him. I know he should be in a store lobby, but I could not resist him, I had to buy him.

Hi all, haven't been here for a while i like reading the conversations. I do want to say one thing real quick then off to bed for me! Dadummy, I think you have a very pure heart with pure intentions! offer your gifts up, you're a great example for all of us! Good and Laura I missed you ladies! i don't know where the time goes...decorating yes, must get on that. anyone have ideas for us? i mean we have two very obnoxious kitties that love dangly things, so we had a tree a few years ago and that went capooey. they decided that it was a scratching post and a miniature kitty haven for playtoys so we quit. now we have our one year old son and would love to get a tree this year, not a real one though. i'm not that ambitious when it comes to cleaning Smile never have been
Da...we don't have a yard just some rocks, we live behind a used car lot and there's lots of gravel so no outside decs this year. would love one of those huge snow globes!!

I have a mother cat and a kitten too, the kittens name is brat, you can ponder why, it is a big brat, into everything, so I can see it with the tree this year. I am sure we will survive, she was that same age two years ago and everyone is ok, just found my ornaments behing the couch at spring cleaning time, LOL.
Those snow globes are nice, they are pretty expensive, they take a significant drop after the holidays now. I have seen them cheaper at the drug stores. We have a local riteaid and they have one heck of a selection of christmas ornaments and decorations at a really good price, that is where I bought my new tree. Do you have one near you?

Oh you are in trouble with a kitten and a tree. Your ornaments are history. I would always unplug the tree when you leave the house so the kitten don't chew the wires, they are very curious their first year, your kitten will see it as a real tree and climb it I bet. I wish you lots of luck with this and have patience with the kitten, it is only doing what comes natural, play, play, play.
I start decorating the day after thanksgiving, I will probably start the weekend after since it is in the middle of the week.

Thats a lot you people are doing. Well mine is a real tree and I know how difficult it is to maintain that. I have placed it in our garden. That will be decorated for sure and I have already started doing that. Going to buy an artificial one as well for granny's. She loves cakes....and I am good at it(blowing my own trumpet Wink)

Happy Holidays to all Smile

Grandparents expressions tell so much on the holidays as they watch generations of their families come together, what a nice thing to do. These are memories that she will cherish the remainder of her life, and the younger children will always remember going to granny's house. Have fun, hope everything goes well.

Yes I am sure that you have built alot of good memories at grandma's house. I think it is great that the family is willing to go to her house since she is older and let her enjoy hosting all the festivities, alot of times younger generations try to step into too young and start new traditions, grandparents should never be left out of the holidays and I think it is great that you have made her the center of it all.
