Christmas Trees and Christmas Cookies . . .

Today we wanted a quiet laidback day so we started off by having breakfast about 11 at IHOP. We’ve been eating here for a long time and it’s always nice to run into waiters/waitresses who remember us from last year.

Leaving IHOP we drove across the parking to Home Depot for a couple of things before ending up at Wal-Mart, where Jan was stocking up on supplies for her Christmas cookie baking marathon later this week. Then it was home for the afternoon.

On another note, we finally got our Christmas trees set up this week.

The inside one,

and the outside one.

Christmas Palm Tree 2011

Hey, it’s Texas, what can I say.

Since we’re always here for Christmas, we leave everything in our storeroom here and don’t have to lug it around.

Later in the afternoon, Jan fell asleep on the sofa, so I decided a nap was also in order for me.

That certainly was two hours well spent.

About 6pm we headed up to Seabrook to have supper at Hooter’s for a batch of XXX hot wings. Too bad we didn’t wait until Tuesday.

Tuesday is Sexy Santa Day!

But since Tuesday is also Bingo Night, it’s probably not going to happen.

Tomorrow looks to be another day of clients and errands with some Christmas shopping thrown in for good measure.


Thought for the Day:

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection….again.

  1. Your palm tree looks great. But, we have a neighbor just down
    the road from us that puts out 2 palm trees every Christmas and
    we are in Michigan. We are heading to the Valley in 10 to 14
    days. Can’t wait.

  2. Virg,

    Sounds great.

    Have a safe trip.


  3. Where did you get your lighted palm tree? My wife wants one for next or everyday for that matter.

  4. Joe,

    Here’s the one I got off Amazon for my wife two years ago.

    Despite the picture, it only comes with the large tree, not the smaller one too.
