The Annual Christmas Tree Quest

We set off on the annual search for the perfect christmas tree yesterday afternoon.  It was bright  & sunny but extremely cold!!  Miss LiLi enjoying a snack in the car on the way there.

Waiting to board the trolley ride out to the fields

As you can see she thought the whole day was a lot of fun!
Poor Meghan had to sit on the floor with the dog!

How about this one Scott?  Is it tall enough?
She's still having fun!
How about that one?
It was at this point my camera battery died so I don't have any pictures of the trees.  I just have to say Mark & Dani picked the first one they looked at.  Scott & Deidre ended up with a pre-cut one that they paid less money for than was also way bigger......& I went home & dug out my fake tree again!


  1. Sounds like a lovely tradition. We have to go to the Christmas tree loses something.
    I bought a fake tree but this year I was told we are having a real one.

  2. Val, Just finished looking at Sophis's and your blogs...loved them both. She is such a cutie. Bet you will get drawn into her Christmas excitement. I loved your pictures and got a laugh out of both the ice dream and Walgreens trips. thanks for keeping up....And tell Den I said Happy 40th Birthday!Ellen

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val
