O, (pathetic) Christmas Tree!

Our sad Christmas tree

This is it! This is all we have up. Aren't we great parents? The kids aren't sure how Santa is going to fit any presents under this so-called tree.

Next year our house better look like the Griswald's. That's the only way we are going to make up for this year.

Oh, the installer said they will come Saturday to install the floor. But we don't have enough moulding. It will have to be ordered. And come after New Year's. At least we can put our furniture back after they put everything in. I think.

The Siren and I send our condolences to your family, and its teeny tiny Christmas tree. I hope you're not hosting Christmas dinner.

Next year like the Griswolds indeed. In all seriousness, Merry Christmas.

Unfocused: I like to look at it like the tree Charlie Brown picked out. Or, like the piece of Stonehenge in This is Spinal Tap. :)

Merry Christmas to you guys as well!

Oh please. The kids will talk about the year there were no floors and a tiny tree for years to come. It will end up being a great family story. You wait and see.

Merry Christmas!

I don't think the tree itself looks so sad - it's the setting :-). Is that a life-size picture?

Just kidding. Merry Christmas, and here's to new floors in the New Year!

Cookie: You are probably right.

Merry Christmas!

Florinda: Thanks. Merry Christmas to you !
