Now mind you, even after 6 years I can't get used to the Christmas trees available to us here in Montana. Being a Pacific Northwest girl, I grew up with the most AMAZING trees to choose from. For many years now that has been the one thing that I have refused to compromise on living here in Bozeman, until now. You know that old cartoon, "due to the economic downturn Christmas has been cancelled"? Well that's kinda what it's like at our house this year.
Not one to be deterred, I decided that Christmas should just be different this year... So we are doing white elephant gifts and making a game out of our gift giving. We are having breakfast instead of dinner, we are playing poker on Christmas eve (only for pennies!) and watching Dr. Suess' "How the Grinch stole Christmas". Now that the course has been set, I am starting to look forward to the festivities!!
Leaving you for the day with some Christmas funnies... Enjoy!
