We did manage to get the tree up and kind of straight. I had two very excited Cowpokes. Little Cowpoke is the most excited. He will run into the living room and say, "Oh, it's so beautiful, I am so happy!" Little Cowpoke is so sweet. And he is a little on the redneck side. He love "muscle shirts". And he doesn't mind showig anyone his big muscles. That picture was taken the day it was 70 degrees here and beautiful. Right before it turned 31 degrees with gusting winds and rain. Okay, it wasn't really 31, but it sure felt like it. But, anyway, back to the tree, remember those power tools that Mr. Cowboy had to break out to "trim" our tree? Well, those power tools cut off a few branches, and I used those to decorate my mantel and piano. I was so excited. I needed some greenery and there I had it! I also love our cowboy boot stockings. My mom gave those to us about 4 years ago. They are too much fun. And yes, we are short one stocking. I can't find Big Cowpoke's stocking. He has a Wrangler jean one. Then there is the piano. I got a little crazy with the greenery. I found some icicle lights that I wasn't going to be hanging and I put them under the greenery. But they only covered half the piano. So, I will have to go and find some longer lights. There the piano is, all lit up. I have a bunch of nutcrackers. I am not sure how I got into collecting them, but I love them. I had to put them up high where the Cowpokes couldn't reach them. Little Cowpoke broke one of their arms off with in .2 seconds of me opening the box. And here is the tree all lit up. I like colorful tacky trees. We have all sorts of ornaments on the tree. I like the homemade ornaments and the school made ones. I didn't know that people had themes for their trees until I came to Louisiana. My theme is "Life as I know it, Crazy." And do you see that bright blue light?That is an icicle snow man that lights up and changes colors. The boys love it. It's really bright. The boys decorated the tree tonight, and did a pretty good job of it. We only had two ornament casualties.
