On a warm December day...


Fetzer wanted me to show you our Christmas tree. 


I've had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year. 
The fact that our temperatures are almost reaching 70 degrees might have something to do with it.
At least it cools off to the 40's at night, and we can have the fire on, but this is what I wore today. 



My MIL will be here in a couple of weeks to spend Christmas with us.  
We enjoy having her with us, but I need to get my behind in gear and get my craft room guest room decorated and ready for her.  I do hope the nice weather holds up for her.  She lives in Bend, Oregon and it is very cold and snowy up there this time of year.  



This Friday night I'm going to get all "dolled" up and go to a Holiday Party with my hubby. 
The party will be at one of the hotels on the Las Vegas Strip.  The weather is supposed to still be pretty mild, so at least I won't freeze in my party dress!  I have to admit that even though I'm sure we'll have a good time,  I always look forward to getting home to my soft, flannel, PJ's and sitting by the fire. 

Stay warm.

More gorgeous photos! I need your camera! It would be hard to get in the spirit with 70 degree temps, your welcome to all of our snow!
Have fun at the Christmas party I bet its gorgeous in Vegas at Christmas!

Your tree is beautiful Becca and from what I see I really like your living room! Fetzer is a doll...I can't wait to get another kitty!

I can't believe you still get to wear flip flops omg! Back home they are having sooo much snow. One area received 6ft already and I am jealous! We are having so much rain that it is hard to drive in. Lots of heavy down pours . My son keeps telling me its because we live in the rain forest. True.
Oregon sounds beautiful especially with all the snow. Is that where your hubby is from?

I have to tell you that you cracked me up with the tumbleweed comment! I love sarcasm! That comment was right up there with the plastic surgery and monkey one lol !

I want to see photos of you all dolled up on the strip!!
Pamela xo :)

Fetzer is so cute! Your room looks so cozy, I can see why you'd want to curl up in your pjs! I've lived in the south and west so have spent many warm Christmases, too~ in California many people made tumbleweed snowmen decorations! Hope you post a pic from the party all dolled up!

your cat, your tree, your decorations, they are all so beautiful, such gorgeous pictures. I will it was 70 here, I am so cold and my house is freezing! you are a saint having your mother in law to stay, shame you have to give up your craft room for the time. Absolutely love these photographs.

Fetzer is sooo handsome =) I also love to come home and just lounge in my pj's, going out is nice, but "there is no place like home" Love your tree! XO

Halle said...

Wow...flip-flops and Christmas trees...not the typical fare in MN. Although I do fantasize about Christmas on a tropical beach sometime....when the kids are grown and gone.

Hi Becca,

Your tree is beautiful and so is your living room. I know what you mean about not being in the Christmas spirit, and we have had lots of snow already so I can't blame it on the weather.

We don't have our tree up yet, but have a few other things up.

Take care,

Kathy

Fetzer looks like he's a good boy and leaves the tree alone. ;-)
Hugs,

Fetzer is so cute! He looks like he is about to get into some kind of mischief! Have fun getting dollie up but I'm with you - it's always so nice to come home and get in your jammies and wriggle your toes. Have fun!

Catherine said...

Flip flops by your door! Oh my goodness... I have boots, and mittens, and toques, and scarves, and... well... I'm sure you get the picture. :(

Your tree is sure pretty!

Hugs to Fetzer!
