Mele Kalikimaka

Since we are only going to be in our Hawaii Home for another 2 weeks, we decided not to get a Christmas tree but I really wanted one! So... for about $2 at the BYUH copy center, I purchased our "tree" and trimmings. We listened to Mariah Carey's Christmas Album, drank hot chocolate and ate candy canes while we put up our tree. If you want to feel festive while reading this blog, click here. During dinner, we watched a Christmas Carol. I don't think Christmas should start until December and that's why today we had so many festivities. You may also have notice that I have started a new trend... a very uncoordinated outfit and naked faced again. Maybe someday my make-up bag and I will reunite.
I cut "down" the tree

I requested that every little piece come out of the snow flake. He puts up with so much from me.

The lights

The angel always has to go on last.

Putting up the snow.

If you look closely you can see the snow flakes on the wall around the tree. My very first white Christmas!


  1. it's time for you to come home now.

  2. This is the cutest idea. Very festive.

  3. We have two things in common: dead trees.

    (Tyler forgot to trim the bottom off of ours and it is falling to pieces as we speak. Yours is actually the better form of dead tree.)

    Merry Frickin Christmas is right.



  4. Cut you own Christmas tree...if that isn't the cutest thing ever! I laughed and laughed - and Mariah Carey Christmas fit right in our family (except Ira ALWAYS complains every year that "All I Want for Christmas is You" is NOT a Christmas song!)...I can't wait for him to see and listen to your blog - Revenge:)
    We will miss you for Christmas. Next year we will request a White Christmas for your visit.
