so, I am a Christmas Tree skirt snob..

I am a snob about quite a few things but I never thought one could be so particular about a Christmas tree skirt. I have had this old one from who knows when. It's been around probably a lot longer than I have and I love that it reminds me of home and when I was little. I do, however, feel the need to make my own home so I am on a mission to find a nice one. I want very specific colors. No green or gold or red. I want blue and silver. Strange, I know. I may put up with some other colors as long as the others are not dominate. Annabelle and I went shopping Saturday and I can tell that she is going to be the one that enjoys that with me in future years. She helped me decide that I did not like any of the ones they had to offer at any given store.

As far as school goes, we are slowly adding more pages from our books and I have mapped out how many pages we need to do to keep Abby on track. She has gotten so much better at sitting and working quietly. She makes me proud. I am really liking this cheap language arts book I got at Sams Club. I may stick with it next year, who knows! Wes likes it too and he is pretty darn picky being the homeschooler that he is. I think we might be doing some work through the Christmas break as not to get off our groove and we have a long way to go. We started the school year all over again in October so we are a couple months behind. Also, I think we'll be going to DasCHE next year instead of SALT. This is a big deal. I am comfy in my co-op. I have made friends but SALT is moving to Camp El Har and I totally do not want to drive there every week. Oh well. *sigh* I am glad Abby has lots of friends in DasCHE. :-)


  1. Lou says, you may have to do with the "oldie but goodie" until you find just what you are searching for.(Opps, "for" does not belong at the end of a sentence does it!) I understand wanting just the right thing! It does make a difference. I would not think that blue and silver would seem unreasonable and hard to find. I am sure you will find what you want, and the wait will make it worth it!

  2. No, that would be bad grammar. I have no reason to pay $15 plus to get something that frivelous. I'll go the day after Christmas and get it on clearance along with those new LED lights for outside I've been wanting. ;-)

  3. If it helps you any, it took me forever to find a tree skirt I liked! But I did find one after a couple years, so keep looking! I think blue and silver Christmas decorations are beautiful, too.
